Customer Question
Hi there. I've got...

Hi there. I've got a 2007 holden wagon. I just tried starting it after driving it all day and it won't start. Both blinkers are stuck on solid (not flashing).

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

There is white stuff on the red terminal. When I turn ignition on (without trying to kick it over), all other electricals work. However, when I left car to walk home, I couldn't lock it with my auto key lock.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '07 Holden?

Commodore

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Commodore yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so
