Roadside repairs 0•7

The following pages are intended to help in dealing with common roadside emergencies and breakdowns. You will find more detailed fault finding information at the back of the manual, and repair information in the main chapters.

If your car won't start and the starter motor doesn't turn

• If it's a model with automatic transmission, make sure the selector is in P or N.

• Open the bonnet and make sure that the battery terminals are clean and tight.

• Switch on the headlights and try to start the engine. If the headlights go very dim when you're trying to start, the battery is probably flat. Get out of trouble by jump starting (see next page) using a friend's car.

If your car won't start even though the starter motor turns as normal

• Is there fuel in the tank?

• Is there moisture on electrical components under the bonnet? Switch off the ignition, then wipe off any obvious dampness with a dry cloth. Spray a water-repellent aerosol product (WD-40 or equivalent) on ignition and fuel system electrical connectors like those shown in the photos.

A Check the security of the ignition coil(s) electrical connectors.

BCheck the security of the airflow meter wiring plug.

CCheck that all fuses are still in good condition and none have blown.

DCheck the security and condition of the battery connections.

a water-dispersant spray like WD-40 if you suspect a problem due to damp E VVT-i engines).

When jump-starting a car using a booster battery, observe the following precautions:

• Before connecting the booster battery, make sure that the ignition is switched off.

• Ensure that all electrical equipment (lights, heater, wipers, etc) is switched off.

• Take note of any special precautions printed on the battery case.

• Make sure that the booster battery is the same voltage as the discharged one in the vehicle.

• if the battery is being jump-started from the battery in another vehicle, the two vehicles MUST NOT TOUCH each other.

• Make sure that the transmission is in neutral (or PARK, in the case of automatic transmission).

Jump starting will get you out of trouble, but you must correct whatever made the battery go flat in the first place. There are three possibilities:

1The battery has been drained by repeated attempts to start, or by
