    Default My car is dead

    I think I'm coming into a run of bad luck. My 2.8T Siggy was down 12bhp yesterday when it went on the rollers at CC tuning. On the way home my dash dials died then came back to life. and then this morning it wouldn't start, battery dead as a dodo.

    The power loss could be due to the fact that my cat is on its way out. Hopefully the dials are cos of a dirty fuse no.17 God knows why the battery drained, hope the alternator ok and it's just a one off, but I doubt it

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    I'd say it isn't the alternator.... unless you've had the battery light coming on? Mine was coming on for months before the alternator went.

    How do you know your cat is on the way out? I presume you mean your main cat also and not your first cat?
