    Hi all. Absolutely useless when it comes to cars. I have a 2008 Fiat Punto 1.9 Multi jet diesel. Yesterday I went to start the car as normal and it went to start before cutting out. After that the car had no power and the screen displaying the time and mileage etc completely shut off and the Rev counter, speedometer, temperature gauge and fuel level indicators just kept flickering up and down without anything else in the car been lot up whilst I was processing to turn the ignition to start the car. It sounds like a droning noise. I put in a spare battery and it drove okay for the rest of the day until I can to it this morning and it was powerless again. It hasn’t started all day. Need so help here. Thank you in advance

    Sounds like something is draining your battery, possibly a short circuit from something getting wet in the recent rains. Best bet would be to talk to an auto electrician.

      Hi Lee. Since your car is a 2014 model, you will be covered under your New Car Warranty, regardless of whether you bought the car new or used, so you should speak to your nearest Volkswagen dealership.
