2009 Skoda Octavia elegance Engine starting issue


Problem added: May 23, 2013 (7 years ago)
Skoda will not start. Dash lights flicker when to turn the ignition and engine makes notice like a slot machine. It's like there is no power. However, radio, climate & windscreen wipers work ok. Any ideas what could be wrong?
