Hmmm.......well, I can understand you are getting fed up with Lucy but it really has to be something simple if she was starting well before and now won't. Many of the suggestions in the old thread about sparks and fuel need another look, I think. Even if the car was serviced recently by a garage, w...

If the battery is fully charged then I can't see how a fault in the control box would prevent the starter motor turning over when you try.

Many, many moons ago, I had a standard SII and retrieved a heater from a 1000 that...
Well, the only way to have found out would be to have changed each thing one at a time and testing in between. You could, I suppose, undo what you've done, one at a time, until it goes wrong again just to find out, but I wouldn't bother - and I doubt you will want to either! Great news it seems all ...
