StalveyKyle posted a topic in One-off Questions and Other Things Asked Often!So I purchased a 2005 CDI fortwo a few weeks ago. I live in Florida and it’s 60 degrees this morning car won’t start. When I first turn the key over I notice the glow plug light doesn’t come on for more than 1 or 2 seconds then goes off. Every video I have seen it comes on and stays on for a bit until the glow plugs are heated up then they start it. Haven’t really had any issues until this morning. Battery is brand new been trying to start it for about 30 minutes now. Any ideas? Thank you.
sailor1949 posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 450 Model, 2005-2006, dieselTried to start my car this morning. Gear in neutral, turned ignition on and then starter. All I heard was starter going for split second and then all the dashboard lights went crazy, blinking away including headlights even the speedometer needle was jumping all over (at least the horn stayed quiet). Switched ignition off and tried again with same result. I shifted the gear back and forth and back to neutral but nothing changed. It also sounded like a relay (maybe gear control) was chattering away. I finally decided to give up and to my surprise removing the ignition key did not stop anything what was happening. I had to disconnect the battery to stop everything.
