    Hi Guys, i need a little help, my battery died at work today and i tried jump starting by pushing and attempting to get the engine ticking over nicely, that did not work. so then a friend arrived with the leads to jump start off his car. that worked fine on the way back from work i noticed that my petrol light was on and my gauge was showing nothing when the car has well over half a tank in it. also the temp gauge was below the blue mark but the car had been running some time and along the journey it did not come up. I have searched the forums and topics but nobody seems to have the same problem as me :(

    can someone shine some light on this situation please

    thanks for your time.

    This might sound crazy when i went out to do the cluster check i noticed the break lights werent working. went into the engine looked at the fuses saw that a 15amp had blown, so i changed it and then the petrol gauge and the temp gauge went back up in to place :S weird, thank for the help though it pointed me towards the right direction i was going to give up and take it to the garage. saved a few pennies lol
