Hello,can anyone please help me ?
I have a ford focus 1.6 zetec on a 07 plate,
I was on my way to Wales today when as i was approaching the M6 my outside temp reading disappeared followed by the handbrake warning light coming up then the seatbelt light came on then the airbag light made an appearance then the indicators stopped working.I called the AA and they checked the alternater which was fine and checked all the earths they were also ok and they looked at all the connections in the car which were all good,they towed me to Toddington to switch drivers,after coming back from having a cuppa the AA man said everything is working but still towed me back to be on the safe side,i'm now worried about driving it.
I would be very grateful for any advice,
thanks,Alex. :)
