If there is an alarm on the bike it can drain the power and over a time reduce the batteries ability to store charge and deploy its charge. I would say buy a new battery, if the battery has become very flat it wont hold a good charge again.

run the fault codes first to see if there are any codes, next is to use the scanner to reset the ECM program
Lastly is to check the wiring circuit to ensure that you have not by-passed a control that stops the battery from going flat.
Lastly have a load test done on the battery because the gauge shows full voltage , batteries can fail under a load such as starting.

Sounds like you have a loose connection on a battery cable. loosen the bolt and pull off each end and clean, then replace. When you clean them, make sure you get down to clean metal.

can you hydro test your battery?

It may be "new", but then, what does that really mean.

2000 reg clio 1.2 and SOMETIMES it will not start.


Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail

Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.

If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
