Thanks for that Polly, will remember that for if it does it again!

Do you know what causes the problem? Is it just the weather we have been having- ie snow etc causing possible damp wires?

Thanks again

Hi Polly

A couple of days after I wrote this post, my car wouldn't start- the battery had been drained. So I had to call the AA and they guy jump started me, so I could drive to a local garage. The garage wouldn't touch the electrics and said it would need to go to a main ford dealer, so I booked an appointment for the weekend.

Ever since the AA man jump started the car, it has worked perfectly. All the problems have been sorted. I cancelled my appointment at the Ford Dealer as the problem was solved, and it has been fine ever since. I have no idea why this has resolved the problem at all! I can only assume the damp wiring has now dried out, or it was an electrical issue and jump starting it has reset the system??

Thanks

Sam

Thanks for your replies. Is it a big job to check the wiring behind the radio? I presume this involves taking out part of the dash? Would you be able to estimate roughly how much it would cost to be fixed?

Thanks
