Help Needed Guys!! Jumpstart has damaged my car?
Thanks for reading this. I need some help with a problem that is doing my head in a little.
First off, I parked my car up for a week whilst I went away. My neighbor said my brake lights were on for a day or so. I have seen this happen once or twice where I come to the car in the morning and the brake lights are on, but as I drive it every day usually its been no big deal, besides, it's only happened three times in so many years.
Anyway, the battery was totally drained, so I decided to jump start off another vehicle.
Now my car has the airbag and ESP light coming on intermittently, it gives me warning lights for the headlight sensor and bulb failure, again intermittently, the language on the DIS has changed to german, I only have one trip function, not the two that I'm used to, and the car doesn't seem to have enough charge to turn the engine over, then after about ten turns it picks up and fires. Strange..
I have had the car plugged into a hand held diagnostics device where it threw up loads of codes from the steering wheel slip ring (airbag??) to the control module......
Have I fried something or reset the car to factory settings?? I really can't think of what it could be.
The car runs OK once started so I presume the ECU is still good.
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
I have charged the battery but to no use, the car starts fine, but soon drains the power.
