Sorry about the video but have you checked to make sure that the wires for the starter are connected good and tight? You should locate the relays and make sure the ignition relay is clicking when you try to crank it over. Also try banging on the back of the starter with a hammer to knock it loose if this works then you need a new starter. If not I would get a multifunction volt meter and check the resistance of the ground to starter, negative to ground and negative to starter if every thing reads below 1-2 ohms you should be in the clear on that if the wires are failing and reading high resistance then it may be time for new wiring or cleaning the wires and battery. Now check the voltage at the ground, starter, and battery if everything reads 11-13 then you will most likely need to remove the starter and have it tested at your local parts store at that point if it checks out clear then you will probably need a professional diagnosis.

SOURCE: my clutch pedal one day

Your clutch uses hydraulic fluid just like your brakes do. You have a "Master" Hydraulic clutch cylinder connected to your clutch pedal. And you have a Slave Hydraulic Clutch cylinder connected to your clutch assembly. There is a Leak that is getting worse in either the master or slave clutch cylinders. Find the fluid Reservoir for the Clutch Master Cylinder and fill it with brake fluid as an emergency remedy.
It will be necessary for you to locate the leak. When you do, you can use a rebuild kit to fix the offending Cylinder. I had this happen on an 84 Volkswagen bus (called a Vanagon) The leak was in the slave cylinder. I got the kit and rebuilt it. Never had a problem again.
In your case, You should be able to get a kit or entirely rebuilt cylinders.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck,

Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...

My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

Hope this helps sorry about spelling and good luck

Vitara 1.6 16v 96' wont start

There are multiple reasons. Need to start the process of elimination. First things first, the cheapest thing to check is the battery. I've had several vehicles which displayed the same thing: ran one day, wouldn't start the next. Fortunately, they just needed a battery.

After that, could be other issues: alternator, starter, possible timing component issues, fuel pump.

I know this is vague, but, the it is sort of a loaded question.

Can not solve Battery charging fault on my Xzara Picasso.? The battery on my Xzara went flat and " Battery Charging Fault" message came up and the battery charging light stayed on.. The garage...

If the regulator in the alternator has no feedback from the battery voltage, it will overcharge the battery OR the alternator is faulty. If the alternator is spun and a 12volt current source is put on the field terminal, it should produce 14.5Volts and no more without anything else to control it. I reckon the alternator is faulty.

Mileometer set itself to zero

I went to take my car to the garage Today (Thursday) but this problem had completely disappeard on its own. They reckon water had leaked onto the ECU at the back of the battery, it is in a stupid place for this right where the bonnet closes et. Luckily my mechnics are of the "old school" and sorted my problem. It had rained heavily on Tuesday night which is when the problem started. Thursday was a nice sunny day and had most likely dried everything up. They made me a cover out of a plastic screenwash bottle to go over the ECU to stop water getting in in future. Will just wait now til next time it rains.
