Battery or Alternator on my 156 ?
Wonder if you can shed some light.
Tried to start the car this morning and a few bleeps and nothing - everything went dead. Jump started off my Astra, and fired up. Left it running while I put the Astra away.
Drove a few yards, everything lit up, ABS fault, glow plug lamp flashing etc and it died. Absolutely flat again. Did this twice, same thing. On tickover it was OK. Tried to drive it it had a fit !
Battery indicator on battery was 'clear' or white. This is an ex-company car and has most if not all service history at our local Alfa dealer. They have no history of a battery having been fitted. Car is a 55 reg 1.9JTD SW.
Luckily my 32 year old Volvo got me to work today so have bought a battery to fit tonight.
Any thoughts ?!
