I've seen some of the problems on here before, but not sure if i've seen them all combined.
Sometimes when i start the car (159 2.4 SW - 2006), i get the message ABS unavailable, followed by VDC unavailable, followed by hillholder available. These warnings cycle for a few minutes and then they just become a cycle of warning lights.
This tends to happen if i start the car a second time after failing to start first time (either because of EGR/idle issues or just because i haven't held the button down long enough the first time).
Sometimes, when it starts first time, i will just get the 'ABS unavailable message', but this invariably dissapears in a couple of seconds.
i've seen suggestions elsewhere that this could be related to a failing battery - any ideas.
