I have checked the fuse which solves most problems and changed battrey but nothing, there is a plug i found which doesn't seem to be connected to anything which is located by on the back side of engine it's a 3 plug with a yelow/black, red/white and a black could this be anything to do with it or is it just there for the hell of it:confused: i have just had to change the master cylinder and servo due to the car decideing it would be great fun to slowly bring the brakes on as you drive along this is now sorted but still have these lights lit up like it's xmas(perfect timing:lol:) any help or links would be great as i love the car and dont want to give up on her just yet cheers mart:thumbs:

As you've had your battery disconnected (non intentionally) your ECU is probably just a bit confused ... give it a few for restarts and I'm sure it will sort itself out :thumbs:

i've just been thinking about that fuse that usually brings the failure no connection fault up, does anyone on here know where the cable goes to when it goes through the bulk head i've tested it at the engine side of bulk head and there's power there, thought if i could find where it ends up i can test for power to rule out broken wire etc, i'm just clutchin at straws now to be honest any help would be much appreciated, cheers mart.
