Sudden random major electrical woes
wtf is going on with my car today?
First the ABS light came on while driving this morning. Wasn't too worried, easy enough to rectify.
Then the alarm started going off for no reason early this evening. I went down just to switch it off again and the clocks were illuminated... odd. The immobiliser light was flashing, the you've-been-driving-for-four-hours indicator flashing, and the interior light was on.
Took it for a drive to the shop; drove fine apart from the ABS light again. Got back to the car and the indicators were all flashing, probably because the alarm had gone off. Got in, got home and then all hell broke loose.
The battery light came on, there was a clicking noise coming from behind the clocks until I opened the door and the interior light dulled to very dull but didn't quite go off. Oh, and if I set the alarm it goes off without fail so it is now left opened, unarmed and unlocked.
Does this have anything to do with the suspected leak causing dampness behind the front passenger seat? I imagine the scuttle tray may be filled to the brim...
Battery is new and the car starts without fail, so it's not the battery per se. Car drives fine, too.
