“Wesley's mechanic Jamie was more than helpfull. He explained everything clearly and in detail, he gave me a quote for the repair then took my car back to Bolton sum 1.5 hours away to be repaired, i recieved a phone call at 21. 00 hrs from Paul telling me he had just finnished the work and my car would be back with me first thing in the morning. The car was returned on time with no added extras, the driver had also put fuel in my car at no cost to me plus the 4.5 hrs driving time was also free of charge. I would recomend Click Machanic along with Wesley and his team for thier dedication, quality of care and punctuality, to any and everyone i no. . A hughe thank you to you all. Mr Tim Dobson.“

“I am delighted with the service I received. James kept me informed by phone what was happening and Joe, who came to collect my car for repair, was very friendly and professional. He explained why the air conditioning unit had not been working without talking down to me (I'm a woman and not very knowledgeable about cars) and this was appreciated. The air conditioning unit is now fully functional, which is a relief considering the current heatwave! i would have no hesitation in using Jamie and Joe's services for any future repairs.“

Want to learn more about Car Won't Start inspections?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

There can be a number of reasons why the engine starts with difficulty, makes a noise or does not start at all.

Usually when the engine turns over or makes a noise it is unlikely that the car's battery is flat. It is more likely that there is an issue with the car's fuel or ignition system. Alternatively, it might be the case that there is an electronic problem or there might be more significant mechanical damage to the engine's supporting systems like a broken timing or serpentine belt.

If the indicator lights are turned on it is likely that the problem lies with the alternator, starter motor or another component related to the charging system. If there is a light on the dashboard indicating an issue with the security or anti-theft systems, then there is an issue with the immobilizer/security system (it is advisable you contact a specialist in this case, we might not be able to help). On top of that, should any warning lights have lit up then it is advisable to have an inspection, to find out why the light may be on.

If none of the indicator lights on the dashboard light up it might mean that the battery is flat. This can be because of any number of issues, like:

  • Faulty battery charging system
  • The Battery is flat / needs recharging
  • Electrical issues
  • Broken serpentine belt
  • Faulty alternator
  • Battery cable issues
