The g/f picked up her 02 plate 1.2 last week & has driven it all week without any real bother.
She came to see me on my dinner yesterday at work & that was the last she used the car.
Come to jump in today to go to town & minimal dash lights are on.
Mileage display - which comes on when you unlock the door, displayed sod all. Even with key turned.
Interior blowers worked
The only lights on the dash that displayed were the handbrake light & the light indicated by the green arrow:
Which i believe is an engine warning light?
She's try to start it & it'd just turn over & not fire up.
It has supposedly had a new battery & the altenator checked. She says the battery is new, but as she was told it'd been serviced & i've spotted that it hasn't (tap water for screenwash, dirty coolant, black oil) i wonder if it's had a NEW battery, or a DIFFERENT battery - being 2 different things.
Got the jump leads out & tried it off of my car - again no joy.
Kept trying & kept trying - no joy.
Was about to push it to where i park so it could be stuck on charge (even thuogh doubting that'd be a solution) & when she turned the key, everything fired up (lights) as though there'd been nothing wrong & car started first time.
This comes 1 week after all the needles dying on me on the drive home from Scotland & then firing up again, & then dying again & doing that cycle about 4-5 times in the space of 30-60 seconds (which also hasn't happened since).
Ideas of causes?
Ideas of solutions?
Ideas of likely cost?
EDIT: As i have opcom, where's the port to plug in to so i can read/wipe fault codes?
