Finally the car refused to start when I was at a supermarket; a nearby Renault garage tested the battery and said it only had 50% capacity left, but that was unlikely to be the cause of the failure to start. They also jumped the car, but without success. However, when the Rescue guys turned up the next day, it started first turn of the ke
