Need help with 147


Sorry for having an issue with my first post!

I have a 2001 146 1.6 and have not had any issues until today!

Basically, it started with the remote locking not functioning, but now I have ABS, ASR malfunction messages (amongst others) and the car won't start.

The batrey is showing a green light and appears to be fine as the lights etc are working, but the car will only start when another car battery is used, and when this occurs, the engine management light comes on.

Is this simply a case that a new battery is needed, or do I have an electrical fault?

Thanks a million

Does sound a bit like the battery.
Mine never lasted for more than 2 years
before it needed replacing.

Welcome anyway!

My 156 ate batteries as if they were free...

Good luck with your 147, and welcome to AO.
