Dashboard problem - previously it has stayed on now and again, and going out and jiggling the key about in the ignition and waiting an hour has cured it. Not tonight.
Car was last used yesterday evening, and went to sleep straight away. Looked out the window, and the display had lit up again circa 3 hours after I left the car, and 2 since i'd last checked and seen it off. Went out, jiggled the keys about and it went off with in an hour. Double checked this morning, and it was still off.
Didn't use the car today, but this evening i look out the window, and the display has lit itself up again all on its own. On the common problems thread, it suggests this can be mended by bbereman cheaply - no other information than that.
My question is what (or who) is bbereman and will he be able to fix it, or is it more likely to be a knacked ignition barrel?
Only other thing "wrong" with the car i've seen recently, is a couple of weeks ago it was showing the lights as lit on the dashboard, and they definitely were not switched on. Lights have been on pretty much every journey since. Any ideas for a DIY fix, or is it to the garage again - I can't afford to let the battery go flat.
