Re: cold weather problem.
My car did this too. The hazards flash because the drain on the battery from starting the engine is so great that, when the battery's on it's way out, it interrupts power to the alarm, which is triggered by loss of power. My car eventually failed to start altogether, followed by a couple of unenthusiastic wails from the alarm. I bump started it (yes, I know this is naughty) and took it to Halfords, where they tested the battery and advised me it was beyond rescue. £90 later I've got a new one that's guaranteed for 5 years and the difference is amazing
There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those that can read binary, and those who can't.
Driving: Vela Blue V6 Gtv 5spd, blue Momo leather
Gone but sorely, sorely missed:
Meteor Grey Gtv Lusso | 17" Teledials | Bilstein rear shocks | Ragazzon straight thru s/s centre exhaust | Some crappy Halfords air filter. Perfect condition and still 220bhp after 95k
