My reliable old workhorse wont start.
Last week I had to start it with jumper leads, but was puzzled as the battery was fully charged.
This morning i tried to start it after a week of sitting on the drive and and it made a real crook ticking noise.
Now its not doing a thing.
Anyone else had the same problem!
if it does need a new starter motor, how much much would i be looking at to replace!

Cheers nave12 and pup2, all sorted!
Now can either of you help me with this problem!
My hazard lights have a mind of their own! Come on when I drive over a bump.
Quick solution: take out hazard lights fuse!
Where is it!
Would this have anything to do with the rooted factory alarm!
How would I remove this!

I would be looking at the alarm, just cut and seal the wire from the alarm that joins into your hazard light circuit.
