    Just a Quickie.....

    bit of help needed.

    A family friend is with a friend in a fiesta which has just decided to break down after stopping at a supermarket. The car is completely dead EXCEPT that the speedo dial goes right round to 140mph!! (thats a first!!)

    Anyone know what might be the problem (yes - I know its something to do with the oval blue badge on it!!!)

    My first guess is the battery has a short in it, or the alternator has burnt through.

    RAC are on the way tho.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com
