Try putting a charger onto the battery when you’re not using the car and see if it makes any difference.

You can attach the charger on the contacts in the engine compartment, then you can close the boot and the light goes out.

Re: Resurecting an Orinnoco 2.8

Welcome ask away with any questions, I’m sure someone on here will be able to answer them.
You can get a reset tool for the abs light of eBay for very little money. It is sometimes the yellow connection under the seat that is rusty or come unplugged.

Re: Seat removal question

While the seat is still connected to the power, try operating the forward switch, and try and pull the seat forward while sitting on the seat. Then go backwards in the same manner. Keep going forwards and back and the seat may move under the power of the motor. The motor just sticks as it doesn’t ge...

Re: Engine oil Z3 M

The more offen you change the oil the better it is for the engine. I also don’t do a lot of miles each year, but I change the oil every year, regardless of how small the mileage is from the previous year.
If you change it yourself it makes the oil change a lot cheaper as well.

There should be a little red light on the dash, if you press it, it turns them off. This allows you can say leave a cat in the car and still put the alarm on.
