Well after over 5 years of trouble free motoring my S2 Elise Sportsracer seems to have developed a fault. Initially I have noticed that if the car is not used for greater than 3 days the battery goes flat requiring recharging.
I trickle charged it overnight last night and used the car this morning without issue as she started first time. My commute to work is only a couple of mile, but on arrival I thought I could smell something like a hot electrical component as if it were burning.
I checked all I could but could find no issues.
At the end of my working day, I again started the car with no issues. I left the car on tickover for a few minutes while talking to one of the cars admirers at work :-)
Once ready to set off, the car stalled and took a while to restart. On trying to drive off again the car developed a small misfire but kept running but always felt like it was going to stall again. I managed to get home and again had a look in and around the engine for anything obvious but could find nothing wrong.
The only test I have carried out so far is to check that the battery is receiving a charge while the engine is running which it is.
Has anyone had a similar fault or can anyone point me in the right direction to get the car running sweet again please.
Any help or advise is gratefully received.
