Hello,

Have you checked the actual voltage at the battery? Overcharging is as bad as under charging.

Have you check the diagnostic lamp to see if it is on?

If the lamp is on, follow the attached instructions to view the fault codes. Record and post the results here and we can find what you need to do for a repair.

Do not clear any codes until the repairs are done. Clearing codes will not fix anything! The repairs must be made to eliminate the codes.
