I am hoping that it is a saftey feature, if a head/side light is out the indicator comes on permanantly on the same side.......

Can anyone confirm?

Exactly that.

The intermittent sidelight issue may be a dodgy connection. I would suggest removing the bulb from its holder, clean any corrosion around the base and then reposition in the holder before refitting the holder.

Thanks Charles.....I will check this.

I went out to the car today. I havent used it for over a week due to the Xmas break. Nothing, absolutly nothing....

Battery read 4v and my CTEK charger just didnt want to know.
I used an old audi A8 battery as a jump and the CTEK then recognised the battery and started charging. I will leave it on all night tonight.

Still got the coolant leak and the bm-24 to sort as well as the sidelight bulbs (thanks Charles).

Swapped out the BM-24 radio module for ne i bought from Baris at Carphonics.

An easy job - yes, but i stupidly waited for it to get dark and then started the job.....

Leak from the car was also checked, no liquids found at all. I will continue to use the car and see what happens.
