I have a T plate partner that has developed a strange starting problem.
If I leave it ticking over for a few minutes and turn it off it then fails to start next time.
It gives symptoms of a flat battery, ie wont turn over, but lights etc are OK.
If I put a home type 11 amp charger on for a minute or so it will then start.
If I then stop it remove the charger it starts OK.
This has occured a few time over the last month or so and seems to occur after it has been left ticking over.
Any ideas what the problem is.
Battery has been tested OK, all leads are clean and tight.

Hi Trustme.

Battery has been checked,all cables etc cleaned and it only happens occasionaly so do not think it is a lazy starter.
When it happens if I connect another battery to jump start it the engine still will not start, gives the same symptoms of a flat battery.

As soon as the charger is put on it starts.
Its as if the higher voltage from the starter which is about 14.5 volts kicks something back into life.
The charger only has to be on for a few seconds for it to start.

Doing my head in quietly LOL.

Thanks for the response
