    Default Cold weather affecting car?

    Hi all.

    I had a problem recently where the car complained that the NSR indicator bulb had blown, but on replacing it and messing around found that the bulb was in fact fine. That problem seemed to go away on it's own.

    This morning however the problem returned, and the only real common factor has been the cold weather. (both mornings its happened it's been around -4C)

    I've also noticed that the windscreen wipers behave odd in the cold, for example, in intermittent mode they are constantly going, and when turning off they stop anywhere and do not return to the bottom.

    Anyone else have similar (very odd) issues in the cold weather?

    my rear nearside reverse light is playing up intermittently, in the cold mornings I get the warning / alert comes on etc. But later when it warms up it goes away on its own.....must be the cold...
