Low battery light then all hell breaks loose !
Well.... not quite all hell being let loose ..
Low battery (red) light came on on dash on an outward 7 mile journey tonight - coincidentally after me cleaning the MAP sensor - very rainy and engine bay got a bit wet,
Anyway .....- on way home radio turned itself off - as did air con heater - speedo stopped reading mph on 30mph and rev counter stopped - seat belt warning came on as as did yellow anti skid light and handbrake light on warning... and anti lock brake yellow light .
2006 1.9 diesel coming up to 120,000m on the clock
Wipers going very slow
Battery only on 11ish volts - so its off the car and on charge now - its a fairly new 12 months old bosch heavy duty battery - Im guessing its the battery or alternator shagged.
With charged battery tomorrow I will test alternator output - any observations or tips from readers welcome
Thanks as always !
