went to start car this afternoon and it struggled
then abs light coming on and off
turned car off and would not restart(had to jump it)
runs fine when started
all lights seem dim
dash lights would not turn off when lights turned off
alarm sounding saying door open when it was not

any ideas would be great before i start paying out more money
over £2000 spent on car in last six months already

thanks

How did the connection to the battery look? How old is the battery? Could be a bad alternator.

Do you have a alt/charging gauge on your dash? If so, start car, take off neg battery cable, and look at the gauge to see if the system is still charging, or the car might die as soon as you take the cable off. If its not charging, or dies it's a good bet, it's the alt.

Looks like a gas gauge, in you dash cluster,like coolant temp gauge.
