i'm starting to think this may solve my issues as well, if not, i will go ahead with plan A which is purchasing a high output alternator.

You should solder not butt connect the wires it will last longer and reduce the chances of the same problem down the road and i also heard there might be an in line fuse running from the battery, just a thought if someone is trying to troubleshoot a problem!

I am having the same problems, but no batt light. I will replace the pigtail just to rule it out. I will do the coilpack paigtail while the solder is out:)

Well, just to add to the current mysery.

My alternator just went.. i think it did anyway.

Pulled into the garage, put £15 worth of petty in it.. Turned the key... No-Start. Not a thing.

The electrics are working but were flickering and dimming for most of the time ive had it (5 days).

It's going back to the dealer tomorow to get all its shit sorted. Wish me luck ha.
