Hi started sounding just like a poor battery.. maybe not.. have you locked unlocked vehicle since recharging maybe try this and or removing battery power overnight otherwise I would call out the breakdown and see what they find good luck let us know Charlie
Yes locked and unlocked several times. Im leaving the battery disconnected overnight but am not hopeful. If I plug my code reader into the diagnostic socket and turn on the ignition then every 5 seconds or so the fuel gauge drops to zero and the low fuel light flashes 3 times then the needle returns to half full If we have dry weather tomorrow Ill break and remake every electricl plug I can find and perhaps try a new earth strap but I think itll be leaving on a recovery truck somehow..
Update. AA man been and couldnt connect to the diagnostics. Diagnosed ECU not powering up - no power at fuse 17 in the under-bonnet fusebox. Putting a live feed into fuse 17 lets the engine start and run and diagnostics work. Ongoing..
