    Copens have very small batteries... In my case, 15 minutes stopped with the lights on was enough to flatten the battery (from fully charged) to the extent that it wouldn't start.

    If this is the first instance of reluctance to start, then most likely it's a flat battery.

    First thing to try would be to charge the battery overnight - if you don't have the time for that try jump starting it.

    Yep, I second the flat battery hypothesis.

    Thanks

    Correct ppl, It was a battery problem the negative connection was slightly loose and with the aid of a rubber mallet all sorted.

    keep up the fun fellow skate board lovers
