    if that was the problem then why didnt it start when i tried to jump start it with Another Battery that was in another car?

    i definitely have fuel in the tank, i have 2 bars on fuel gauge. and every time when i turn the car on i can usually hear something working i think its the fuel pump, you might have a different system with yours being a 2010 model and mine a 2001. Yeah the problem is probably electric considering it just shut off it has to be electric. gonna push start it tomorrow and see if that will force the electrics to work

    I think the fundamental problem is the fuel pump because i cant hear it whirring when i turn the key to the on position

    No it didn't start when I was jumping it, it started it after a bit on the trickle charger

    Im really lost though because I don't know what caused to the leap into life before. I'll clean the terminals tomorrow and leave it to charge and see if that does anything.

    At 17 I've helped my dad and brother fix up their cars so I have some experience under my belt. It's just this car has never had any problems so it's annoying unfortunately, if I had an income I wouldn't be adamant on keeping the battery but I'm in college and it doesn't pay unfortunately. Correction no idea why it's not starting. VID_20200206_165627.mp4

    I have previously tried to jump it and it still would not start

    Let's just say funds are difficult to acquire and I can't exactly remember when the battery was changed it might've been 8 years ago but it might've been closer so about 5ish years ago I got the car off my dad. Also it's a RAC premium surely that should count for something. Im a 17 year old kid, and I used my old summer job to scrap up insurance money which is expensive

    The reason its sounds low is because I turned the Key quite a few times before and it wasnt starting. I was just recording my final attempt I'll record another when the battery is fully charged.

    Yeah it was nearly dead because I tried turning the key quite a number of times and it not starting.

    So I tried starting it after it got fully charged. The video here is me starting it after a few times, if anyone can give me a lead that would be appreciated. I'm thinking its fuel pump or somewhere in the electrics it isn't getting power but the dashboard has gone funny. VID_20200205_155704.mp4

    I'm just gonna have the mechanic come and take a look at it. Because it's best to know for definite what is wrong than just speculating
