Just when you think you are out, they pull you back in!Its quiet on here so want to play a diagnostic game? My car is in the garage having a diagnostic done to determine the disposal method of my car. Either repair and sell or sell as spares or repair before I get my next one. I've been looking for cars the past week, nothing is interesting me. So it's a jag again which type I do not know but a jag it will most likely be.
Your battery's probably fragged. When mine went all sorts of weird stuff started to happen including phantom faults.Clues? The battery went flat when I picked it up from the last repair. I gathered that was cos it's been there sitting for a month. It went flat again after it broke down last month after sitting with hazzard on listening to the radio, 4 hours that time If I remember right.
On one occasion it went into limp mode and the speedo stopped recording altogether, just sat on the pin. Managed to limp it back home and borrowed Mam's Golf to get to work. On getting back home later in the day the X-Type deigned to start without issue. Lack of use at the time probably didn't help and neither did Lockdown later. I ended up buying a fancy charger and charging the battery with it every fortnight but in the end decided to cut the crap and bought a brand new battery from the RAC. Been fine since.
Maybe buy a new battery, keeping the old one, and see if the new battery makes a difference. If it doesn't put the old battery back in Bic and you have a brand new battery when you turn out to be unable to resist that shiny 59-Plate X-Type Sov you know you will be unable to resist buying.
