Okay, there I was, sitting in co-op car park. Just got back in, plipped the car, all the doors unlocked, the selespeed motors triggered, put the key in the ignition, waited like a good boy for all the motors to finish whirring, turned the key, everything died! Everything! radio, dash, lights, locks, boot light, instruments, central locking - everything. Took key out, still dead.
Popped the bonnet, pocked some wires, wiggled some pipes, nothing. Slammed the bonnet, nothing. Opened it again called a mate with a set of booster cables, I thought the battery had just died!
Mate arrived, tried the same things again, car started fine,
ran fine, battery shows 14.4 charging, 12.7 off!
Mate is still laughing at me muttering "F@@@ing italian junk, buy a decent reliable motor for f@@@s sake"
