I once had very similar symptoms, it was like the bloody thing was possessed. I almost called a priest rather than a garage!

I had convinced myself that a diode was breaking down in the alternator and leaking ac current where it wasn't appreciated. Garage thought it was the starter motor. I was sceptical but it turned out they were right. New starter motor, new battery and it was perfect from then on. Fingers crossed for an easy fix.

Right guys had a call from the garage, the car conking out is the maf, so just ordered a replacement

Been told the electric issue is started motor and alternator so had these replaced but abs light still on and it won't talk to his computer

So I need another abs unit I'm annoyed about having to spires and buy another as the one they put in cost me 200 and when I asked why it needs replacing after being in a day In told the alternator must have fryed it??

Could this be the case?

I guess anything is possible but seems unlikely. What was the problem with the previous unit? I have a known working ABS unit that came off a phase 2 twinnie but it's an early one without EBD. Would have to check the numbers match with yours.
