Driving to work in the rain today.

Pull into my car park and as I about to turn the car off, the gauages on the cluster reset (drop down to zero) and back up to normal levels 3 times. The DVD and TV turn off and the sub cuts out.

Weird? It gets weirder.

Driving a staff member home about 8hrs later, the DVD/TV combo keeps turniong off and on. THen as I got through a roundabout, I get the CHECK ABS light. Before I know it, the engine has cut out and the car is off and in lock mode. Started her up and drove home no more worries.

I am thinking I have got a loose battery terminal (havent checked yet), but does anyone else have any ideas?

Ok they seem to have a bit of rust on them so might get the mechanic to check it out when she is serviced.
