hey all.. went to start my car this morning and nothing happen.. the thermo fans turned on.. and thats it.. so i thought the battery is flat i left it charge all day.. and when i got home put it back in tried to start it.. it still wouldnt work.. so now i think it might b the starter motor.. i checked fuses and made sure the termials were corrosion free and on tight.. and only the stereo and fans turn on..

so any thoughts on what could b wrong would b much appreciated..

thanks

Jonno

Hey Superman, Check your battery terminals and then try changing your starter relay for a spare or one of your headlight relays. Or maybe there is kryptonite in the petrol?

what model car if ef or el the body control module can go with no warning try giving the dash abve your left knee a bit of a tap while the key is in the start position if that doesnt work i sometimes have to turn the key and hit the horn and it starts if these dont work then look at the starter and so on
