Re: I have bought a pig of a car...

Thanks for your replies guys,

The Battery change occurred the day after I took the car home because it completely died. I was driving along when the car cut out, I pulled over and tried to restart, everything went haywire then died, I called the RAC then wanted to walk to a nearby shop but the car wouldn't lock.

The Dashboard worked fine until recently, the main issue was the handbrake fault which started a few days after the battery change. Last night I also noticed that the mileage seems to be wrong as it seems to have shot up from around 50k when I bought the car to 101k in less than 3 months

The trip mileage gets zeroed when the dashboard cuts out but seems to work fine when it comes back on. The clock resets itself to flashing zeroes. also when the dash is off the controls by my right hand(volume paddles etc) for the radio don't work but everything else does (indicators, windscreen wipers etc.)
Currently in RenoRoger's garage:
