    So the whole car dies or just the dash?

    Sounds like power issue tbh fella, maybe a dodgy cable, check all fuses are located fully in the fusebox, not sure if you also have some under the hood by the battery as the 8P has, when it goes of do any of the lights work etc etc, just fault finding cause if was major fuse/feed cable to fusebox then lights wouldnt work either, if was fuse/cable feed to dash then rest would be ok, just ideas to help.

    You sure it wasnt code 00668 as that suggests as I have above, supply voltage error but maybe for another component

    just the dash dies everything else stays on ie. headlights if ive got them switched on engine stays on ok as well, im guessing its a loose wire somewhere thats what the aa bloke said as well

    as for the error codes there as follows

    0667 ambient temp signal (not sure what this fault is)

    17521 heated oxegen sensor (which is the lamba sensor common readout)

    18010 voltage supply terminal 30 low voltage detected (faulty battery it has been replaced)

    so when the aa bloke checked the codes it showed the 0667 code on the dash check

    having done some research it would seem that the dash dieing is a common fault and that the whole unit itself is at fault so i need to refurb the unit or buy a new one

Has anyone came across this problem before ?

    hi,
    as far as i know this is a not a fault with your car, it relates to the state of charge of your battery.
    does the car have a battery charge indication on the driver display?
    afaik if the charge goes below say 75% the car will start shutting down non essential
    electricial loads in an effort to maintain battery charge levels.
    i think the dash clocks are one of the first to shut down.
    your battery may be past its best or not charging properly.
    maybe try removing battery and charging with a mains charger !

    maybe of some help to you!
    brian.
