Car Won't Start . . . What's New?
I have been tucking the car up for the night. Opening the bonnet and putting a couple of old pillows over the engine and battery in an attempt to keep the frost out. Last night was bitterly cold. I had intended driving into Central MK to get my hair cut, but the car refused to start. We used it yesterday to go to Asda, so I don't see why it's playing up today. I reckon the problem is not only the cold, but the fact that the car is sitting on the drive and only gets driven a few miles a week, not enough to keep the battery charged. It will no doubt start again, if it's given another jump, or, perhaps, if the battery is charged overnight (we don't have a charger, unfortunately.)
