Therefore, a question to the guys who still run with an EGR: have you had to change the EGR as well at regular service intervals?
Not sure which engine you have but in my previous car a 1.9 GT, I only ever had to clean it. Several times over four years.
My 159 last night after I reversed a fair way back down a road developed a fault. The hill start symbol came on followed by the "security system failure" warning message. I'd also been using the spare key. This morning it was still showing the error and I couldn't start the car. Now, I normally just use the clutch to start it but after trying the brake instead it started. The A/C display then went blank. I've had this display blanking once before.
After a few restarts and miles later everything goes out. Back to normal. I had read whilst out (I'd took my mum's car for an MOT) that a low or dead battery causes this from a thread on here, so I'm guessing that the battery had charged up properly as I've been off work since Thursday and only used it for short journeys.
Anyway, and I'm tempting fate, the "glow plug not available" warning has cleared too. Car currently on one of my Optimate chargers.
Self repairing "Christine" perhaps as it has now twice self healed
I've now learned the car does have hill start but I'm damned if I can work out how to use it even after reading the manual. Incidently I also found out why my internal boot release stopped working, it's a menu option
What a Christmas so far........
