Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Good evening, I have a 2007 9.3 Vector 2.8. I've got into the car, turned the key, nothing happened, steering lock on, key stuck in place, no lights, everything dead. I disconnected the +'ve lead from the battery. Put it back, heard clicks and noise, tried again, dash lights cam on, but went off when I turned the key. Repeated around 8 times. Same result, lights on dash when key turned, then all goes off when turned to start. So I then did the same with the disconnection and then pressed buttons on my key fob, wondering if it would reset and this time it started, but unsure what I did. Same again when I got home. I don't think it's the battery as it seems either all on, or dead, nothing in between and I did a 4 hour round trip on Thursday, but could be wrong. It did cut out on the way home, whilst driving and I did the same routine. More guesswork than anything. Is there a particular method of resetting, such as pressing specific buttons on the fob so many times, or for so many seconds. I'm clueless and I have the same round trip tomorrow. Any ideas on what the problem might be? I have a boost charger from a neighbour for now, although, I'm not sure that will help me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
