To be perfectly honest I’m not all that sure myself. I keep getting numerous faults including gearbox fault , parking brake fault, EGR p0405 p1162 among others. The p1162 seems to have stopped now but the others keep coming back whenever I clear them. I read somewhere that this can be caused by a faulty fuse box somewhere near the battery or a broken wire around the rear of the battery, I’ve looked at the wires but can’t see anything obvious.

Have you checked your battery is 100% as this causes some nightmare problems.

Not checked battery, but then I haven’t noticed any problems starting etc. I’ll get it checked ASAP.

Tested battery with a multimeter and I’m getting 12.7 with engine off and 14.37 with engine running.

What happens when you add some load to the battery ie lights etc. Voltage should drop a little but not any less than 12v.

Also worth given the engine a rev with load on to see what Voltage is. This should increase voltage again with lights etc on.

But it would appear your battery is looking good.
