    Driving to work last night I stopped in heavy traffic and waited and waited
    then finally switched the engine off.On restarting the only warning lights
    to go out were the oil pressure,tracs.air bag and abs. All the others
    remained on. Also the heater fan will only run in manual and not in the auto
    positIon. On starting up to return home things were the same so I got home a
    had a look around but could find nothing obvious. I tried to restart but the
    battery had gone flat which has been removed and is on charge now.The
    alternator belt is fine and nothing else seems amiss.
    Any ideas

    This is classic dead alternator symptoms. Don't worry about the heater
    fan not working in automatic until you have the voltage supply fixed -
    computers have a way of needing a certain voltage before they work
