Have been having a problem with my Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2003.
When i turn the key in the ignition, all the lights come on, redio works etc...BUT the engine won't!
I hear a loud click from the engine and no activity otherwise. i spoke to a mechanic about it and he reckons its the solenoid!! As he showed me how to temporarily get it working. Tapping it with a hammer when it wont start. This worked for a while. Not anymore. Brought it back to the garage(also with another problem...cough i put too much oil into the engine) and the mechanic said he could find no fault. He cleaned out the solenoid as he thought it might getting stuck!
I got the car back today and nothing, even after tapping with a hammer. Just clicking all no engine activity!
Has anybody encountered this problem before?
