Hi Hannes, no I did not find it. The car goes in for electrics, a small coolant leak and the diff leak next week. Hopefully that will sort it out. It turns out that the sidelights only, the reversing lights and the brake lights are all not working, the engine light is still on too. Gremlins and witchcraft at work
Kevin: did you find the bug?
This has been mostly sorted by the dealer. A faulty fuse was replaced and the lights are back working.
The engine warning light was on as the EGR valve was found to be faulty, this has been replaced and the engine is now much more willing to rev, smoother, pulls better and sounds better. It has also lost the faint tapping sound it had on start up.
The diff cover was replaced and the coolant hoses tightened and therefore both leaks fixed.
In the process of all this the heater fan switch got disconnected somehow and I discovered while checking all the lights that the foglight was not working. I opened it tonight to see if it was just a bulb and found it waterlogged and rusted solid ........ ho hum..... back to the dealer
