About a month ago a drove through a flood, car made through.
Stopped for petrol about an hour later, car wouldn't start, not even turn over. In fact when I turned the key, it cut all dash lights and electrics. Loads of random VDR / ABS errors etc. Thought soaked battery / alternator.
Walked home, went back the next day with a battery booster pack. Car started, gave it a good drive and no problems since. Alternator seemed happy
Putting the winters on today, car slipped off the jack and snapped the left rear handbrake cable.
Ah well I thought, but back to VDR ABS and ASR errors, car won't even start or turn over.
Dash display is dimmed as if battery is dead. Car won't even lock via central locking.
Fuel cut off is fine too.
Bit of a coincidence.
The car slipping the jack wasn't worth then a bad pot hole and the handbrake cable is easily fixed.
Am I just looking at a new battery/alternator or is there anything else that'd cause this?
The errors wouldn't stop the car starting, bit flummoxed here
