Hi everyone, I just returned form a one month overseas trip 4 days ago, it managed to turn on and drive but after a few days it's now not turning on. my best recount of events...
is250 2008, Left in garage for 4 weeks.
Day 1) 9/1 - First time driving after the break. Battery is 6 months old so did not expect it to have many issues. Second attmept starting up (quickly switching to neutral and revving lightly sustained the ignition and was able to drive around for 30 minutes.
Day 2) 10/1 - Started/Drove fine for about 30 mins again, no issues noticed.
Day 3) 11/1 - Started fine, but noticed a high pitch ticking sound coming out of the engine. Particularly loud when in Drive or Reverse, but not when in Park. Planned to take into mechanic next week for a look. Looking into the bonnet, it sounded it like it was coming from my right side (facing the car)
Day 4) 12/1 - Remote didn't work. Entered using key. Tried to start up the car but had no response. Nothing in the car is lighting up including the dash. Only the LED on the ignition button is on. Subsequent presses of the break was harder and harder.
Has anyone encountered this before or have an idea about what the culprit may be?
