    Exclamation Dash warning lights

    Hi all,

    My 52 Vectra Club is displaying a whole bunch of warning lights.

    When I first start the engine, I get the battery light come on for about a minute. I've already had the alternator replaced as the voltage regulator was dead, but the battery light still comes on in the mornings...

    I've also got a coolant level warning light. This only appeared intermittently initially, but now is on all the time. I've checked the coolant level, it is fine.

    I've got the brake pad wear indicator light on. I've had the pads replaced and the wear sensor (and the front discs, and a calliper - grrr) but the warning light is still on. When I queried this with the spanner monkey, he claimed it took about 100 miles for the warning light to go out.

    Finally, the resistor pack blew on the cabin cooling fan, which I replaced as per another thread on here. The resistor pack blew again after about 3 days.

    So.....

    What do people reckon?

    1) Why does the battery light come on for about 1 minute every morning?

    2) Why have I got a coolant level warning when the coolant level is fine?

    3) Why have I got a brake level warning light on, despite having the pads and sensor (etc) replaced? Is wait 100 miles just a load of b*ll*cks?

    4) Is it possible that I've somehow fried the electrics in the car with the old alternator giving out over- and under-voltage for about 2 weeks while I tried to convince the garage the alternator was dead?

    5) Is my car just a nail?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my rant! Any input gratefully received!

    Cheers,
    Phil
