This morning was -2.5C and my gf's corsa B just wont start. My Corsa C had no problem starting up, its never had a problem since having it since about april.

has anyone else had this problem? and is there anyway of starting it quickly?

thanks

i had this problem on my old corsa i found if it was old ignition type i would take off the ht leads spray the spark plug with wd-40 and it would start up fine think it was just the ht leads breaking down slowly over time

yeah dash light comes on, it tries to turn over but doesn't get that far, sort of does a bit then gives up.
cheers for the quick replies i'll have a go at that.

i would say thats the battery draining if all the lights go dim if it sound like it turns over but gives up where as ive had it turn over but wouldn't fire

and my old battery was quite rubbish so gave it 10 mins on the charger put it back in would give it helping hand or jump start
