First check if the battery has got good amount of charge and is properly hooked up(snug tight) by blowing the horn and switching on the headlight together. If there is enough charge then check if you are getting sparks at the cable end connected to the plugs. If it sparks properly clean out all the plugs and adjust the spark gap. If current is not reaching the cable then check the induction coil and the related fuses. Finally if all the above fail, open the distributor cap to see whether the spindle attached to the cam is providing proper contact to trigger the charge from the coil to the plug. Clean those contact points & if worn out, replace them. After that your vehicle if still does not respond, try jump starting it with the help of a battery of another running vehicle.............sodeep

Have a 2005 Bentley continental gt and will not turn over


Will not crank at all or will not start? No crank, try turning on headlamps and then try. Do light dim? No = bad solenoid, start switch, neutral safety switch, ignition switch. Dim yes = bad battery connections, weak battery, bad starter motor or ground.

Are the two battery's on a 2001 Bentley Arnage the same?and how do I change them?


Yes you can what you like providing it fits in the hole ,now check the air vent as some new type batteries are sealed units and dont have one but some are blanked off with a plastic plug which you pull out and fit the vent pipe to it .Now as for physicaly changing a battery then look for how its clamped in or a strap over the top as i have never worked on this model vehicle

I have 1997 Bentley Turbo RL. If I leave it more than 10 days the battery goes flat. Tried brand new batteries - same problem. I now have to keep it on charge when I leave it for a while. Any ideas...


you have something that is drawing the juice out of it. it could be as little as a hood or trunk lamp. check it good and you will find the problem! there is a way to check it out to see if there is something is on. remove negative battery terminal, put a 12 volt test lamp between the negative cable end and battery, hold it there for about 3 minutes, after 3 minutes touch the negative battery cable clamp to the negative post on battery do not remove test light from either end while doing this.if light glows when touching battery. most likely you have a drain problem. ( the light will, be dim as this is normal because of the pcm, but if its bright check it out! good-day !

Bentley continental gt battery does not hold full charge and abs light comes on intermittently?


if the battery is bad, replace it. Low battery voltage can turn the abs light on. Always fix the obvious problem first.

Car sitting for awhile, fit new batteries, car cranked, fired up with ether, is there a common problem with these?


the same would apply to all cars,run them up to operating temp at least once a week, and roll the car 1/3rd of a wheel turn so as not to get a "flat spot"on the tyres....if letting a car stand for any length of time (over a month) the battery should always be disconnected.
maybe its because i am English but "BENTLEY DO NOT HAVE ANY COMMON PROBLEMS (just thier owners.....)they are handmade,not thrown together on a production line......by robots.
(heaven forbid)
