After some help please.
We replaced our altenator on our 2004 Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI, and yesterday we had another problem...
The battery light came on and the readings on the trip computer and mileage reading cahnged to dashes like this - - - -
I stopped the car and turned it off for a few mins. When I turned it back over there was a screech noise as it started up and the digital displays were OK and the battery light went off.
I then made it about another 800 meters and the battery light came back on. I decided to return home and stopped the engine again. Left it for 20 mins came back turned it over and again another screech when it turned over and the light went out.
I have left it over night, went to get in it this morning and it wouldn't unlock by the key fob. Got in put the key in the ignition and NOTHING, not one light, not anything. Not even interior light will come on it is completely DEAD!
I am a bit worried that this may be something more than an alternator issue as obviously something has either drained the battery completely overnight or there is a further issue.
Any ideas, or help greatly appreciated!!!
