Temperature related issues
With the cold weather recently, my 159 develops a number of issues that only arise in temperatures of less than 5 degrees celsius.
- Doors dont unlock with keyfob
- sometimes Glow plugs unavailible
- Parking help unavailible (Reversing sensors)
This week the weather has been milder, above 5 degrees every morning, and I dont have any of the above issues anymore. Now, the battery in my car is 2 yrs old, and starts the car fine on a cold morning, has 12.5V measured at cold.
I am not going to buy a new battery (yet), as it starts the car fine and the above issues are first world problems, but has anyone with the same issues got rid of them with simply buying a new battery, or does the 1.9JTDM wiring loom just have bad voltage drops, connections, etc?
