    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 80k

    Default Please help! Major electrical problem!

    Hi,

    Please god I hope someone can help with this?? Went to the hand car wash today. While sat in the car, engine running my dash clocks suddenly went mental, all lights flashing on and off, headlights coming on and off etc... Then stopped and went back to normal.

    After we left drove down road, headlights came on full beam and entire dash went dead, clocks and everything.

    I've checked all fuses, all fine, the fuse box under bonnet was a little damp... Could it be this?

    Right now status is, get in car, start up, everything works except the clocks, for about a minute, then headlights jam on full beam, and then nothing works appart from stereo, and passenger side electric window!

    Engine runs fine, car drives fine, abs works, no limp home etc.. But can't drive it as have no indicators? Wierdly it locks and unlocks fine... Although at first boot wouldn't unlock?

    Anyone come across this before? Can you recommend auto electrician in manchester area? Or can anyone help this late on a saturday? I'm on 07760386382 if anyone can? In a right mess at the min with divorce etc... Don't need this!

    Hoping a common fault... Wierd this one!

    Mike

    could be the battery running down or the alternator going under or overvoltage. Id disconnect battery, leave for 30 mins then reconnect.

    Matt,

    Your car did exact same thing? That's comforting to know in a way! Hope its just this slight bit of damp of jetwash, don't think fuse box under bonnet had lid on proper... But it been like that for months???? Waiting game now..
