Renault Espace Helios Won't Start!

Hi All,

Recently my Renault Espace Helios (1993) won't start.

She had a few dodgy starts recently which happened when I turned the ignition key - my car tried to start but then just cut out. After a couple of attempts (and applying the accelerator pedal) she started.

Since then she has stopped and refuses to start - when I turn the ignition key she is completely silent.


I have tried charging my battery overnight, but this didn't work (I don't think that it is the battery as all lights, wipers, heater, locking system ect. are still working. Also the battery charger's green LED light indicated that my battery is fine).

I have also checked my spark plugs, and they are all clean and in good condition.

I have no idea what it could be, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

There's no reason why this can't be asked in your other thread, afterall, you're asking the same question. I'll lock this one!
