    Question The dreaded 3 bars!!!

    Hello. Iím sorry for yet another post.
    I know everyoneís first reaction to this will be to go on FQ101 or evolution and yes I have.
    But I just wanted peoples opinions please.
    Just got back from a trip to France in it and no problems.
    Wife went to work and on way back after coming off motorway and coming to a stop it cut out and then when turning back on it had the 3 bars.
    Was able to start it up again and drive home. It goes in all gear and reverse.
    When you get in the car and turn the key to position 1 (donít start it) it makes a lot on noise from the gear box / clutch almost as if itís searching for a gear but then start it and itís fine and drives all be it with the 3 bars on the dash.
    I am going to try disconnecting the battery tomorrow and resetting it but any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Rich

    You should get the error codes read using a suitable diagnostic kit. Then clear the codes and see if they come back as permerant codes or if they were just transient ones.

    Most likely chaffed wiring by the intercooler scoop. Particularly likely if the roads were wet at the time it happened.
