came out of work tonight and my car wouldn't start. Dash lit up but all dimmed out when turned to start engine. Messages on display read ABS, EBD, ASR failure and 0 miles to service. Then i noticed all clocks had reset, time date, mileage, consumption etc. Called out the AA and they Boost started it no probs. He ran diagnostic tests and was a little unsure what problem was, he wrote as follows;
Alternater 14.5 v suspect slight overcharge,
Picked up high AMP drain from one of the positive battery leads,
Battery has slight corrosion suspect possible damage from overcharge.
He informs me will probably not start in the morning.
Now the battery is only 4 months old so assume battery is/was ok. Is it possible its overcharging? What could be causing drain on battery??
Dont worry checked no lights were left on, im so confused now, off to the garage in the morning, if it starts???
How do i jump start it?
