So I went camping this morning down near Honiton and parked up. Now when I turn the ignition no turning of engine. Battery's fine as its on solar and all electrics working.
I have limited phone signal.

What should I be looking for.

Thanks in advance

Give the starter motor a bang with a hammer whilst someone is turning the key, sometimes works.

Thanks. I can just about reach the starter motor, but unlikely can bash it at same time as key turning. Will rolling it and bump starting be an option.?

I checked fuse 23 but that is fine.
There's a slight whir and click when try and start.
No fault codes showing from carista.

Despondent but have cider. :rolleyes:🙃

I wouldn't risk jump starting any modern vehicle, especially a T5! Many reports here and elsewhere of fried ABS modules c£700+ after trying to start with a low battery or jump starting without spike protection. Always best to charge a battery if it is flat. Wouldn't help a van with a dead starter like this one though!
