  1. Mk4 Lighting
    Hi, This week my front indicators stopped working, on both sides. Rear ones work fine and so do the mirror indicators. This is either when I use the indicator stick or hazard lights. The indicator lights and sound on the dash flash twice as fast. Just to give some context, I was at the scene...

  6. Mk3 Lighting & Electrical
    My stop/start has slowly been cutting in less and less, and now hardly at all. Is this likely to be an early sign of battery failure? It's the original, 3.5 years old FL. I don't do many miles, around 25k now, and mainly 20 minute journeys with fewer long trips. It started working again after a...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, although I've had my 2014 st2 for 2 years. I was really hoping someone could help me out here as I'm having major issue with my car. Just before Christmas, I had to jumpstart due to a dead battery. I thought nothing of it til it did it again nearly 2 weeks later...

    Anyone know what battery I need for my 2013 ST-3's key fob? I'm seeing a warning message to the effect that it will need to be replaced soon. I tried a car parts shop but they needed to know what battery it takes; neither of us could get the thing open to see it. Presumably the battery type is...

    Hi all, I am having the problem that the dashboard light (mileage and trip) is staying on when locking the car.. Only just started happening and I've owned the car 6 weeks or so. I have narrowed it down to it being something to do with the audio as when I remove fuse 112, the dashboard light...

    S'up my fellow STOCers? Quick one for you all: does anyone have this trickle charger and, if so, would you recommend it? It seems to be highly rated by a number of magazines and at £44 delivered it seems like a bloomin' good deal. It's switchable between 0.8A and 3.6A, and has a peak charge...

About a week ago I went to start the car and it turned over initially slowly, but fired up eventually so I didn't think much of it. Took...
