stupidly last thing i check is the battery. yeah the cells are nearly empty. awesome. perhaps thats the root of all my problems.

well no, thats not fixed anything other than the clock. still a major problem somewhere. battery voltage is dropping down to 8v and under when trying to crank. dont think it turns the engine over more than a quarter of a turn.

piece of shit. pissed off with it now.

found a dead fuse. was fuse for the hazards lights etc so not sure why that effects the radio. hoping as that will be tied into the alarm also that it was the alarm that was draining the battery. hopefully anyway.

It's either a fuse OR the live at the back off the thingy.

basically put ignition on, info display in centre of dashboard doesnt light up. put headlights on then it does. although it only starts working when headlights go on. for example tonight start car, headlights on date is back to 1992. time at 0:00

left my mates house half an hour ago and its reset. so it has an ignition live problem. the cars battery has decided it wants to drain itself. anyone think perhaps they are linked somehow? and where do i start looking for the live to them?
