After the car lying for long periods of time ive noticed that when starting the car, it can sometimes be tempramental. I vaguely remember the previous owner mentioning something about it, but have just replaced the battery and preparing the car for transport to bodyshop in a couple of weeks.
The first time it started no problem and i let it idle for a few minutes with no issues, after turning it off i went to try again to make sure the battery had enough charge to re-start, thats when it kicked over and revved to just over 1k as normal for around a second or 2, then it died instead of dropping to an idle. This happened 3 or 4 times at which point i gave up as i had to go out.
Just there i tried again, same starting issue the first 3 attempts then it started as normal and let it idle again.
I dont imagine it to be too much of an issue, just something that bugs me and would like it sorted. Im sure i have receipts for a reader coil that was changed by previous owner but hasnt helped, anybody else had this experience?
Not sure if it immob related, as when it cuts out its definately being cut electrically and not a rough start/idle etc. Also the immob light continues to flash after car cuts out:think: Any thoughts???
