Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up. Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick. Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with: "DING DONG" - ABS fault. "DING DONG" - ESP fault "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service. I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla. Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow..... MEH.
Buggerchops MOT changes, post 2006 diesel with DPF "mod" will fail but much worse if your steering box is dripping (and who hasn't had fluids dripping from their box Mr Botham?) it's a fail. Quick book up all the 20th May MOTs. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/apr/14/mot-changes-strict-tests-diesel-cars-fail
