Thanks for your reply - that would cause the problem, the battery connections are OK. having checked things out it seem to be a bad earth connection to the engine which causes the problem and I cannot identify where so the car has gone to a garage as I think they may have upset the connections when they replaced the clutch. Many thanks again - Richard

When you said the issues started after replacing the battery then I suspected the battery terminals were the issue.. But if you just had a clutch installed then that also could affect your issues and I would have them check the chassis ground and body grounds..
