    Default Warning Signs n Symbols

    Out of the blue my car has thrown an electrical wobbly. I get an array of symbols appear on/in my dash including a warning sign through a sterring wheel,skid/abs light and all the dials stop woking and the trip display shows a letter 'f'..also showed that both headlights were out today..

    car still drives when this is happening. turn off and restart and it returns to normal. No obvious similarities in when it happens.

    hi buddy does your battery light come on, can you scroll thru the hidden menu and see what the battery charge rate is on a diesel its approx 14.3-4 v when running anything lower than that could point to the alternator may be wrong thou hth

    I'll put £1 on the CIM failure
    Next time this happens, put an indicator on (full application) and then cancel it
    If the indicator light remains on, then it is CIM failure

    Easy to fix, yes
    Can you do it yourself, not likely

    The CIM module sits in the steering wheel cowling
    Once replaced both keys need to be reprogrammed

    Wait until it occurs more often
    Mine did it once in six months, then it started doing it two or three times a week, and took a photo for the dealership to see
