Hi there,

I know VE very well, is you battery not holding charge, difficult to start etc?

There is a reason to jump start from the engine bay.

Hi again,

Do you need any further help?

VE is known for battery positive cable issues at the firewall bulkhead.

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.

Kind regards
