Hi All

I have a 2001 ford mondeo 1.8 petrol mk2.
today i was driving my car which normally have no problems at all love the car today it decided just to stop in on the road and would not start again.
All lights on dash were flasing and clocks disappeared(went off)there was no power going to engine.so long story short got towed home and while getting towed tried to start the car and nothing just the door locks going crazy and the lights on the dash flashing.sounds like a flat battery but checked that and its perfect so not battery.any ideas would be greatfull thanks sonya

Hi Sonya, what did you measure on the battery? It does sound like it could be battery or alternator, but just because the volts are there, doesnt mean there are enough amps to give it the kick it needs...
