The first thing to do is to reset the codes and if it returns then i would say theres a problem with the alternator, or the wiring, if it returns it sounds like the alternator is taking a while before it starts charging and the computer sees this, i would find out how long it sits at school then drive it as if going to school but go to a garage and let car sit as you would at school, then have them hook up charging tester and start car and see if there is a problem, i assume this happens every time you leave school,if so problem should be easy to find, hope this helps.

Fuel gauge just stopped working.Had new petrol pump fitted 2 weeks ago. My question is : is their a fuse relating to fuel guage or do I need a new gauge ? I would appreciate some feedback .


There is no separate fuse for the gage--it uses the same power as the others. The fuel level sending unot is integral with your new pump. This leads one to wonder if the new pump has a defect or perhaps was not installed correctly. Let me know if you have more questions.
