I would remove the battery and have it tested... many stores that sell batteries will test for you including AutoZone. Then I would test the starter solenoid then the starter itself. Pulling it out and touching some leads from a 12V battery charger to it to see if you get any motion.

Nothing wrong with pulling the terminals and cleaning them.

Looking after supercharged elise in garage - went flat so charged battery, now won't start and there is a circular ring on the speedo just above centre - what is this?


If the alarm was on, when the battery went flat - and I suppose it was - then you have to follow the manual to teach in your keys again.

How do i start a porshe cayenne, its key cant start it


I s your battery dead? do your headlight work? do they dim when you try to start it? Is your alarm turned off. If you have a key fob alarm control is the battery dead in it? Try pushing the lock-unlock button, does it work? press unlock and try it again. Is it in park or is the clutch pedal depressed?
Let me know. Lee

Lotus elise 2005 fob and key does not work


Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.

I have an MGF 1.8 i havent had it more than a week and the clutch pedal has gone stiff and refuse to release making clutch slip or even not engage at all can anyone please help thankyou


One of the improvement for Lotus Elise was the power (hydraulic) 5 speed manual clutch (something like power brakes) to make car to provide the faster responce. Thats probably wthat you have where
You might need to adjust it, replace the fluid or in a worsest scenatio to rebuild/replace the clutch.
Good Luck

where is the leak from sounds like brake or clutch fluid as oil is coloured. Check the level of the brake/clutch fluid reservoir in the front of the car it is a common reservoir supplying both. the slave cylinder fo the clutch is located on the gear box in the engine compartment left hand side towards the bulkhead on a large black steel bracket these are the most common componets to leak. easy to change and not very expensive.
