147jtd electrics dead?
Hi, hope someone can help me with a problem I've had this morning. My '04 147 JTD Lusso M-Jet 16v has not been used for about a fortnight, and this morning the alarm went off. I turned the alarm off via the keyfob, and thought no more of it until an hour or so later when I went to start the car. The time and date had reset themselves, and when I turned the ignition key, all the lights on the dash flashed very quickly for a second or two, then turned off. At no time did the starter motor engage.
Thinking the battery might be knackered, I checked it but it was fine. I've also tried disconnecting the battery for 10-15mins, and checked all the relevant fuses, but now no lights come on on the dash at all, and neither the starter motor nor the fuel pump engage. The car can only be locked/unlocked with the key too.
Whilst sitting in the car with the ignition off, you can hear a very feint continuous tone coming fron inside the dash area, which stops as soon as you turn the ignition on.
Does anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?
