    after 90 mins of driving the engine warning came on follow by HDC / brake warning lights and transmission failure- shortly followed by the car going in to slow drive mode. i just got home then the car stopped turns out battery voltage down to a reading of 7v connected but 11.5 when standing off the car. fully recharged and the car goes fine and alternator appears to be working. ran diagnostics using a basic plug in - no warnings accept low voyage to immobiliser. i am worried it will go again - anyone have any ideas what this is - i have installed a new battery and earth connection incase but cannot think what else to do..

    turns out the inter cooler hose went and spewed oil over the alternator. hence all alarms and a complete flat battery on the motorway although just limped home in limo mode. i have ordered a new alternator but for the life of me cannot seem to get to the beast to change it. looks completely isolated on the tdv8 2009 anyone change this ? thanks
