156 jtd 140 problem not solved after all,,,
Picked up the 'wagon from the garage last Thursday and left it overnight at the work carpark.
Heading home on Friday evening. Stopped at the Chinese takeaway. Refused to restart
Called the missus to collect me in the GT and started fiddling about with electrical connections. When I connected the QBD2 reader it was back to the unable to connect message and I noticed that the ASR warning light was staying on. After swapping relays around a few times the ASR light went off and the car started first time and took me the 22 miles home.
The OBD2 reader worked but the only fault was U0500 which is not on my list of faults....
It has done the same trick to me tonight so on Saturday I intend to go through as many connections that I can to check for dodgy connections.
Anyone had this type of problem?
