Driving back from nice runs on the Nordschleife (see general disc.) I experienced my first major failures (after 3.5 months and 18.000 km);
First, the "right city light failure" error came on
Then, a couple of minutes later, "brake light fuse failure"
Again a couple of minutes later "ASR failure" and all levels dropped to 0 (speedo, Revs, petrol and temperature). The car kept on running though (lucky me, when driving on left lane in Germany
Then also "ABS failure" warning.
5 minutes later, all errors disappeared, levels back up again. 1 minutes later, all failure, on, on ON OFF
Hmm, perhaps it was smart to put the car to a stop at a petrol station wink Did this, no change in errors. When running, pressed all fusus and relays to make sure no bad contacts there. Did not help.
Decided to stop the engine. Then some new problems appeared
Central locking did not work, so I could not open the boot to get some tools
Also the interior light did not work... Suddenly they did again.
Tried to start the engine again, only the startmotor turned, no "inginition". ASR failure still present, NO "CAN CHECK" or "OK" sign in the display
IMO, it looked like a computervirus
, so I disconnected the - from the battery (with the original plastic tool thingy wink )
Connected it again, turned the key: Diesel warming up, CAN CHECK, OK, and BROEMMMM
The next 300 km no problems arose
Then stopped the car, the headlights stayed on (!), even, restart the car etc. Did not work. Kept this for 10 minutes, started the car again and lights went off eek!
Hmm, now (150 km later) all problems seem to be gone, but I guess a checkup at the dealer could not hurt. Need my 20k km service soon anyway
Anybody sees some (partial) known problems
