Hey all. My mom has been having a load of problems with her MK4 fiesta recently.

 

Firstly this is a weird one. Since I put it into diagnotistic mode the dials always do a full sweep every time you turn the ignition on :/ any idea how to stop this?

 

Secondly the battery seems to go flat very quickly. Some times it will go flat over night other times it will hold charge fairly well.

 

It has recently had a full service including fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, oil and filter.

Any ideas what may cause these problems? Any more info I will do my best to provide.

 

Thanks, Jack
