I hope it will be repatriated this week to the UK.
Anyone else had this experience?
I had a problem in france in July.
Parked up for lunch 40 miles south of Dieppe for ferry, then would not start called Saga/AA tow truck arrived 20 mins later, he hot wired it & I followed him to a local garage. They charged me 50 euro claiming dirty terminals.
Next morning would not start again, saga/aa again this time they hit the starter with a long handled screwdriver to start.
Continued hitting the starter each time I stopped till I got home.
Sometimes whilst the engine was running and in neutral I was unable to select drive, I switched off the engine & restarted it and got gears ok.
Got home went to my local garage.
Now the engine will not start after leaving overnite till he hot wires it, then ok each time he turns it off & on including engaging gears ,till he leaves it a couple of hours then has to hot wire it again.
has had computer connected to it to which it came up with about 10 fault codes, which he then cleared down. I think it has got him confused, but he will not be beaten. I dont have any fault lights showing, most confused.com
