    i have had it checked but nothing comes up.. do you reckon it will be the battery? i have also installed a custom cd player in the car with subwoofer wiring etc and put some new 18" alloys on it. Does alignment cause this?

    Alignment wouldn't effect it but your wiring for your stereo maybe causing issues through the canbus....
