I have traded my 156 sportwagon for a 147 2.0 Lusso. She is fantastic and I love her but she's beginning to get on my nerves a bit with her spoilt brat tantrums and her dummy throwing antics.
My 156 Sportwagon, Celia, was amazing. In 2 and a half years, all I ever had to do was replace the wishbones and buy a new battery. but, after a couple of spins in a Maserati Gran Sport belonging to a friend, I had to trade her in for something with a bit more POW!
So my 53 147 2.00 Lusso Eliza, is now parked in Celia's spot. I look out of my bedroom window all the time and think how lucky I am. When I hit the A1 heading to my caravan in Northumberland, I almost squeal with delight when I push the pedal and get a hot result. But then BEEP!
. ABS VDC Failure. Yes I know, new battery maybe, or damp, or even a reshuffle of wires in the steering column. But now, I am getting other BEEP!
s for silly things like limited range when I have a full tank, and brake light out when it isn't.
Now, is it possible that all these niggles could be caused by failing battery? I'd like to avoid the cost and inconvenience of a diagnostic if possible, and would welcome any input. this board is the business and has helped me loads already
