I have just put a brand new down pipe with flexi on, another new idle control valve, a new maf sensor, and now when i start car, the battery light is staying on, put tester on battery, and its not charging, i have not touched any wires.

Done dash test, and it comes up with DTC 9202 and E002

Have something to contribute?

9202 is a faulty fuel sender or wiring if the battery isnt charging check the alternator wiring its not that far from the flexi also theres a fuse in the bay for the alternator to save money a garage would be best that way you only fix what needs fixed

Called RAC this morning, and got this http://www.racshop.c...attery-075.html
voltage regulator was fried, they took me to auto spark, who has reconed my alternator, everything working perfect now, no more sweeping dials.

a battery test is the way to find out mate garages do them free and check the alternator as well its either the battery the alternator itself or the wiring to the alternator or the fuse for the smart charge in the engine bay fuse box

This is the battery fitted http://www.racshop.c...attery-075.html this is the one the rac recommended and came out and fitted, it's brand new fitted yesterday, and had alternator reconditioned, as regulator had died, but last night at work, when I put the heater on full, the head lights go very dim, i have just had battery tested, and as i expected, its excellent, alternator is kicking out right volts aswell, but yet when i put heater on full, the headlights dim, and car allmost stalls.

If am approaching traffic lights, and stopping, the engine almost stalls, seems to be worse when i press break

if you disconnect the 3 wire plug from the alternator with it running, does it stop it trying to stall when you switch things on? mine used to do this but i never found the cause
