    Guys, cant seem to find diagrams as to where the PDC control unit is located, any clues?

    Colin, battery seems fine, altough the connection is slightly loose, which i will defo have to look into at some point.
    Traction Control.... And where is the fun in that??

    A loose battery connection can cause issues with systems hanging/not working. Make sure the connection is clean and tight and that may solve your problems.

    The connection is defo, not a hot point, since it is not realy loose, just not tight enough. Will probably have to replace the battery, since it seems the battery side terminal got erroded with age.

    As for the PDC ill have a look for the controller since now im starting to doubt the car ever had pdc installed, and the sensor on the rear might have came with a second hand replacment bumper. Is wireing preinstalled? i.e if there no controller can I just buy and install?
    Traction Control.... And where is the fun in that??

    Fail!

    Never even managed to start getting the lining off. It seems it better if i get some pro help, and ask him to solve out all the nibbles.
