After the car has been in the garage for a couple of days, it fails to start, even after a 30 mile journey it fails to start the next day

What do you do to get it going then when this happens ? Would be worthwhile getting battery load tested , charged or replaced if needed and original . If battery low even a 30 mile journey while using different things like heater , lights , air con , wipers etc wont really fully replace charge as needed

Hi, I used my booster charger to get the car going. On checking everything later I noticed one of the battery clips was loose, hopefully, everything is alright now, thank you for your advice.

A loose battery terminal may well have been your fault . Keep an eye on the battery , as if any weak cells it wont hold a charge

Unfortunately it wasn't the battery cable. At my wits end with this car.

As already suggested earlier , get your battery LOAD tested . Simple 2 min check and also alternator charging rate at same time

Unfortunately, the car will have to go, I've been to different garages and not one of them is able to solve the problem of the car failing to start after being in the garage for a couple of nights. It's a shame because it has brilliant features and I love the car, however, it's no good if it fails to start, you just can't trust it.
