Re: 156 Tail light issues!!
Think I may have the same problem. I left the car parked up for few weeks, came to start her up and nothing. A quick jump start later and everything was fine, and drove well for a couple of miles until I hit traffic. Then all kinds of crazy things occurred, random revving, flickering dash lights, engine management lights, and then stalling. In the middle of London. In roadworks. Would it re-start? Yeah, right!
Eventually the RAC arrived, turned out that the battery was knackered, and upon replacing it, we noticed (getting to the point) the rear o/s tail lamp was on - the probable cause of my trouble. It made no difference how much we played with ignition positions, light switches, anything, that lamp was staying lit. I cured it by taking the bulb out! New rev counter perhaps then?
