Just been out for a blast to pick up my dogs steroids. All country roads and national limits so some hard driving to check out my recent Geo adjustments.
Handling was pretty impressive with no horrors stories and not too much PSM intervention.

Any how, screaming the nuts off it on all those dirty roads has triggered off an orange warning light. I'm gutted!!!!! nooo

What shall I do? Confused

Is that the battery warning light Alex? Could it be your alternator?

Cheers, Keith

I assumed it was that they can't make enough money on Boxster parts now. puh

Theres a guy in Bolton, he's gone independent after spending many a year working for Hartech. He might be able to help, he does all the work on my 996 and charges a fraction of the cost.
Give Matt a call, 07581247718.

If that's not distilled water you will get a wangle flange failure.

It's my home brew Lancashire potato moonshine. Doesn't half break the grease down on the windscreen and keeps the wiper blafes cleaner than vinegar. Always comes in handy when stranded in the cold too.

Flat battery springs to mind. PSM/ABS could be umpteen different things.
