I could not beleive. Pretty much untouched for half the year almost.

I forgot to disconnect the battery and every week i thought "i'll do it this weekend" etc etc...

 

Anyway, last week, decided to take the car for a run and free everything up. 

Was expecting it to de dead as a dodo but ever the optomist, gave a try anyway... One turn of the key, and she fired straight into life. What a motor!
 

Happy days. Obvisouly there is absolutely nothing connected when the key is off.

If you haven't got a stereo, quite common. 6 months isn't a massive amount in the grand scheme, it's good that you're back on the road with it though!

Cheers mate. There is a stereo in there but it is a old system with no digital functions and a simple cassette player and manual tune radio ahh the olden day! lol. Guessing that the it only gets power when the ignition key in turned? Anyway, whatever the reason, is great that the little car goes with relatively little effort after sitting for so long.

Maybe somebody was borrowing it every now and then when you were at work :shy:
