    Funny startup- any ideas/ suggestions?.

    Hi all,
    Just jumped in my car after work, upon startin it took longer than usual (usually fires on the 1st flick) this time it cranked for a while.
    Weirdly.. The radio was turned off (its usually on permanantly) the CC was on (this is usually always off)
    And the display in the centre of the dash cluster came on ( this is never on).

    Any ideas?.
    Think maybe my battery went a bit flat - but not completely, as the trip/clock/radiostations were all still there.


    cheers
    callum

    Would have thought so in the morning... but it was mild @ 16:00.
    Could be time for a nice new bosch/varta to go missing from our store lol.
