newbie gen8 06 deisel ex owner, i think i might have an intermittant electics problem hoping *** have some ideas whats going on...
Turn the key and immediately the dash display will start flickering on off on off all lights bells and whistles and the wipers will wipe. When it stops i press the start button and it starts ok but the Check Airbag (or SRS cant remember) System warning comes up and stays on until i turned the car off. I removed the key and re-inserted and it its all systems go and no sign of any airbag warning!
Its not the first time the lights have flashed on turn of key, but is first time for airbag warning!
I have recently re-plugged in an unplugged HFT module which seems to only work when it wants to...could it be this? I do intend to remove it and poss fix it.
Other symtoms are intermittant flickering left HID light.
Also car has been sat on drive for 2 months before being used now..battery was waining a little but now has 2 weeks normal daily use so should be fully charged and operating normally.
And lastly i have what i beleive is a dimmer than usual satnav display, and it does appear to get brighter when warm. Again its another issue i was going read-up and find a fix for.
I suppose im asking is any or all of this related at all? or is all these just little small isolated issues?
Looking for any suggestions or ideas what could be going on or wot tests i could do?
Thankyou in advance
