I had to call out the RAC to look at my Mondeo (2008 Titanium X 2.0 Diesel) as when I started it headlights & windscreen wipers came on without me touching anything & no lights on dashboard?? The RAC mechanic said it was the BCU (? - like laptop for the car) and it had to be rest which he managed to do. However, he did say this could be a "car breaker" and could cost £2K to replace - is this correct? The car is in really good condition and has done less than 50K so I do not really want to change it unless I have to.
Can someone please advise if the £2k quoted is realistic?
The car has been fine since being reset, however, can this happen again?
Any help/advice would be most welcome.
