Ok ... with a fully charged battery the car is fine for one or two days, then you go to start it and the starter motor doesn't turn. The battery still seems fine ...headlights bright etc. I have put a voltmeter across battery with engine running and get 14volts??? ...this drops to about 13.2 volts with lights and other electricals running. I don't think it's a battery.charging problem. Is the starter motor faulty? .... brushes worn or out of round rotor? (Please note i had to select Peugeot 405 and year 2005 to be able to post this, the car is in fact a 2000 year 206 1.1L petrol)

Low battery....you can damage your ecu if you continue to use it. Open the bonnet and charge the battery with a external charger and after charging battery check the alternator whether its charging the battery.
If the starter motor is sticking, it can draw a large current. If there is power down to the starter motor while its not starting then the starter is faulty. You can test this with a multimeter or just a test bulb connected to the smaller of the two wires on the starter, while cranking.Check you have a good earth from the battery to the engine. If the bulb lights up but no engine cranking then its a faulty starter.
By starter "relay" you mean the solenoid? .... ther'es obviously power getting to the starter because 9 times out of ten it works. Thanls for the reply anyway
