Help Please!! Warning lights.

I'd appreciate any help.

Right, in the winter (when it was really cold and snowing) my ABS and ESP warning lights would come on when i started the engine up in a morning... which i believe is fairly common?

Within the past 6 months or so i have noticed certain light bulbs are going really quickly, particularly both side lights and the rear number plate bulb.

I've recently had the glow plugs changed.

Unfortunately in the past week or so the ABS/ESP lights have been coming on every morning, eventually they disappear, however, today the engine cut out and i had to restart it.

Also yesterday i had 'ABS warning light anomaly' appear just after starting which was a new one!

Am i right in thinking this is the battery or is it something more serious? Pls help me as i'd like to resolve ASAP.

Thanks Luke

Best thing to do is to get it plugged in as the fault codes will be stored in the ECU and they may give you a lead to what is actully causing the problem. It is very hard to diagnose electrical issues without looking into things a little further.

Very likely the battery is past its prime. Same issues on our 147 until I replaced the battery.
