my 1994 Rover 216 Sli recently wouldnt start first time you had to hold the key on the last tun for a few seconds before it started, it eventually wouldnt start at all unless i push started it so after reading through a few threads I thought i just needed a new starter motor.

so car has been sat ont he drive for about 4 days after it didnt start last time, and i took the battery out to start another car which was flat and it appears the battery wasnt fully charged so charged it overnight and put it back int he rover and she started straight away?!

so could it just have been a battery that wasnt fully charged causing the starting issues?
