Ok, driving into town last night, stopped at a petrol station, no problems, from the petrol station to the pub, noticed the interior and head lights were pretty dim, didnt really think much of it, driving fine though.
later last night about 11, driving home and the lights became very very dim, the radio kept turning on and off by itself, the windows wouldnt do up, i pulled over turned the lights off and on, only one light popped up immediatly, followed 5 secs later by the other, the rev counter was going doolally, but the revs were at idle and fine, i popped the bonnet with the engine running, had a look under to see if there were any noticable problems, nothing, then the idle dropped very very low, almost stalling, i turned off the engine and restarted it, lights came on, but still dim.
I drove off and the lights went off completly, engine dropped low, even with accelerator on the floor, then massive backfire, and engine died completely, funnily the electrics worked a tiny bit, enough for the immobiliser to stay on... i tried starting again, nothing at all, no ticks, no crunches, nothing...
soooooo... any ideas?
