I hope this is the right section to post in, I've had a look around.....
This car is going from bad to worse, 11 days before the MOT is due and the ABS light has come on. Add to that the alarm doesn't seem to behave quite the way it should and definitely doesn't seem to immobilise the car, the electric mirrors are now just mirrors, the PDC has gone quiet as well. Tick over is also poor when hot! So I popped down to my local trusted garage this morning and just to finish the day off they, and I, can't get a response from the diag port under the bonnet.
If I can get the ABS light out then I'm hoping I can at least get it through the MOT, but without the ability to check error codes I'm a bit stuck. The light is permanently on from the moment you turn the key. I've checked both the relays and they seem fine but I suspect it's a power issue.
So has anyone ever experienced this sort of catastrophic electrical failure and if so can they give me any pointers please as I'm starting to think the loom has damage somewhere shorting it to the body.
