For the first time for as long as I can remember I have a problem with one of my "moderns".
The JTD has started to cut out under heavy acceleration (no it's not the lag!!!) and the battery light flashes. First one was a few months ago...ignored. Second a few weeks ago...raised eyebrow. Did it again yesterday and now twice today
No pattern apparant, except perhaps the engine wasn't fully warmed up, but it wasn't exactly cold either, having been driven about an hour or so before on both occassions.
Also, not sure yet but I suspect consumption to be even lower this tank, at 300 miles now and the light is flickering
Another thought, the turbo sounds like a siren, I've read this can be the sign of an ailing blower but elsewhere says it's normal.
Not checked anything yet but battery cables (known problem on JTDs) are first on the list!
Battery and earth cables would be my first too, "the wifes" Multipla suffered with sudden and random cut outs, it was found to be a broken earth strap but had broke inside the outer PVC sheath making it impossible to detect unless it was flexed the wrong way
