147 Dead and Alive Again

Went out yesterday after being away for a few days. Car unlocked OK, I put the key in and it lit up as usual, then died. I nipped in checked this forum - thanks guys - and concluded the battery had discharged. Breakdown guy confirmed this and that the battery was kaput. So I was "recovered" to my local garage, where it was sorted for a new battery and 55. The battery was five years old and the original.

I post this though just to remind others to get the on-board computer re-set at the same time. Mine wasn't and they had left it running and the display was clear, but I immediately switched off and on again while at the garage and got a engine system fault on the display. A quick re-set sorted it, but make sure this is done if the battery has been removed. Don't just drive away and hope for the best or assume it's all OK.
