Intermittent starting problem
« on: December 09, 2015, 06:38:51 AM »
Now I've got the Galaxy running nicely another problem has reared it's head. Occasionally I will go to start the car and I'll get nothing when I turn the key, lights will come on but the engine won't even turn over.

If I leave it and try again it will sometimes do the same, sometimes the engine will turn over but not start and sometimes it will start. It's a bit random on what it will do but it seems to be getting worse.

Any ideas on what could be causing it? Does it sound like the relay 30 problem?

Yeah, I'd take a look at relay 30 before anything else for that kind of problem! Sounds like the usual symptoms.
