    Default 3.2 problem

    Has anyone had a similar problem, everyime i go out now, all the dials go off and traction control, battery light come on. Fan belt fine, checked it the other day and it's charging fine, was about 14.3v.
    Battery iswet on the top, and sometimes won't start.
    It's an intermitant fault , the dials will come back on mid driving.
    Starting to think it maybe the battery at fault as the engine manegment light doest come on at all whilst all this is going on.

    Do you know if the "wet" is acid or water ??. If it is Acid I think you might have a fault with the battery.Or on the off chance the alternator might be "over charging" ( though I don,t think that is the case, by the voltage you said there was) an the acid boiling and getting out from the filler holes in the top.

    Well i think it's acid to be honest Did check the level of the battery and it did seem a bit low, you could see the top of the cells, in some, but the only thing i can think of is tht the oxidisation off the the lead cells has built up enough at the bottom to short out the cells
