if it was immo or keys, your dash will stay on and a red light would appear iirc.

from what i hear the earth ontop of the gearbox is a bar steward...did you check this one?

also when was the last time the battery was checked...ive heard dying batteries can cause all sorts of issues, making your day bad, in pugs.

The clue was in the name gearbox earth lol

Its on top of the gearbox and goes from a bolt to the battery , a black thick cable. Generally the connection gets crapped up so unbolt the bolt and clean all connections and re bolt :thumb:

Its happened again

why am i the only person to get problems with cars no one has ever heard on i had a rover 216 vitesse(i know,lol) and it spent 6 months at rover ant they never did find the problem out

It happened again the same as last time i was turning right when all power was lost i ground to a halt then it came back on again, ive looked at the neut to the gearbox and given it a clean but it looked ok?
the low oil warning came on this time after it started again but i checked the oil level and its fine, had it got an auto shut off if oil is low to prevent damage that may be faulty?

Thanks in advance again
