Need a bit of advice folks....
Just been to see an '01 166 2.5 V6, but encountered a number of faults:
-Battery flat due to N/S indicator stuck on - not flashing
-Both rear electric windows not working
-Handbrake light would not go out - probable microswitch faulty / loose connection.
-Air bag light on - maybe due to flat battery - ECU needs reset ??
-Most worrying though seemed to be an issue with the auto box (Sportronic). I haven't got a great deal of experience with autos, but when kicked down it seemed to slip a bit before I felt the power again - please advise if this is normal.
I'm an electrical engineer and would attempt to repair a lot of the above, however the gearbox problem would be a big and expensive one. First impressions were to walk away - car priced at £2850 but think I could get it to nearer 2 grand due to the faults, but the roar of the V6 was something else - engine in great nick btw. Also a few holes in the service history which again put me off.
I wouldn't mind travelling to buy one - picked up my Accord in London, but am going to hold out for a while and see if I can pick one up local. BTW anyone selling one in Ireland give me a shout
