New member, 1st post. If I do anything annoying or break any rules it's by accident, sorry!
I've got a high mileage 2009 2.0 TDCI Titanium X hatch that had some starting issues over winter. It'd sat through the snowy weather for about 2 weeks since flattening it's battery. I knew that my battery was the original item and pretty much done and after some research thought I should change the starter motor as well.
I did this myself yesterday and was pretty pleased too. The car started instantly, no unusual sounds. However, on a test drive, the traction control light came on after about half a mile, 2 minutes. After a stop and re-start, it went off but then came on again after about the same time and accompanied by the check engine light. The car starts/stops fine. I do think that it's down on power though, although I've not drive it for 2+ weeks so my memory could be playing tricks.
I've never had any lights come on in the 16 months I've had the car, so it's got to be linked to the work I've done. I've ordered a code reader today, should be here by the end of the week.
However, does anyone have any thoughts? Are there any obvious "gotcha's" or things that I could check?
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
