Flashing Odometer? non working electrics


yesterday I noticced my odometer flashing and also a few things not working.

first thing is boot wont open with keyfob or with button on console so i cant open my boot (which isnt good when u have a 7 week old )
electric windows dont work at all
temp display isnt working
windscreen washers not working

im guessing these are all connected but i have no idea what it could be so was wondering if there was anything i could try coz i cant really afford to take it to garage just now

any help will be appreciated

P.S. i just found some posts with ideas to try but feel free to still post here sorry

All them problems wouldn't be caused by faulty products, so itis more that likely the fuses.
The flashing odometer is replicates some kind of fauld witht the electrics which may be causimg it also.

When i had a flashing odo on my 147 the battery was flat, not alowing to use any electrics, the car wouldnt even rev even though it was started.

Do a search for flashing odometer and see what you find.

Good luck!

check out this thread for possible suggestions to fix the problem, mine is always fixed by disconnecting the drivers side electric window control unit.

a lot of folks say this indicates fooked battery but that's not the case on my 147
