156 Charging problems Help.!!
Driving home in our 2001 156 51 plate 2 litre sw and I noticed the speedo had stopped working...then the abs light came on, followed by the airbag light and pad wear light and then the alternator/battery charge light. It was raining at the time, so had virtually 'everything on', and only just made it home,losing power all the way. I put a multi-meter on the battery when we got home....9.7 volts engine running, 10.8 engine off.So battery is on charge overnight, will re check tomorrow, but are we talking knackered battery, knackered alternator, both or something else?
Advice gratfully recieved.
Cheers Rich Hill
