    I had the alternator & battery replaced in my 56 plate 1.9cdti 150 a couple of weeks back after it died on me driving down the motorway, all the warning lights started to come on one by one, when the power steering failed I decided it was a time to bail out, I turned off on the next junction & stopped the car, it would not restart, battery completly flat - wouldn't even lock.

    The crazy thing is wouldn't you expect a warning light to tell you the battery wasn't charging?, the first warning lights were ABS & TC, followed by airbags, dampers, engine management, power steering, DAB box error, no heater fan, why no simple battery warning lamp?
