Hi, i'm having a lousy new year, my Veccy 1.9 cdti 150's alternator failed on boxing day, had to be towed home..great.
Changed the alternator and started car. It started but felt guttless and a bit rough, not wanting to rev (The "car/spanner" light was on). I left it about 10 seconds, on idle, when suddenly the revs slowly dropped and it died. Now the car will only turn over but won't start up. The "car/spanner" light stays on.
Battery tested and charged... no change
RAC called....scratched his head....no fault codes found
Next stop is an expensive garage bill, hence post.
Anybody had or heard of these symptoms?
Happy new year
