Intermittent starting problem
#1
Hi All,

My 08 120000mile 1.6hdi b9 has developed a strange starting problem.
From cold and on short trips (local asda etc ) the car starts on the key instantly, but if i go on a longer trip it's a bit of a lottery if the car will start on the starter, i can hear a solonoid click but the starter motor doesn't turn, nor will it turn with a jumpstart however it will start instantly with a push ( not good when on own)
However if the car is left to cool down it will start on the key again however this can take four or more hours .
The lights are bright and the battery will start the car later on or the following day, am i correct to rule out the alternator and battery ?
Is there anything else other than the starter it's likely to be ?

Does anyone have any thoughts on cause?
All input is welcome including confirming the starter, thanks for any input and time taken to read .

Mark
