VDC System Failure while driving at 70mph
Was driving today on my back from Essex of which I have done 120 miles already and drove for additional 40 miles to west London on the the M25 during rush hour. I had my dip lights on,radio and the air con switch on. I was on the centre lane and I wanted to overtake and so a kind driver flash me so I can go to the other lane. As I went to the outer lane I put my hazard on to say thank you then engine nearly cut out so I turned it off straight away as I got a VDC failure so I drop to 4th and rev the car as it felt the engine was going to cut out and made my to the inner lane asap.
Now after that I pulled over to meet someone and with my doors unlock I tried to open the back doors and I couldn't open it on both side and then the front passenger.I thought it was lock so tried to unlock it with the key fob but it was open so I ended up locking and then unlocking it.
Can it be the battery or is it worse than that?
