My Azure suddenly dies while driving. Of course power steering immediately is lost too. To get the car started again I have to a: Turn off the ignition key and pull it out, b: Re-insert the key in ignition, turn the key to ON position. c: Press the start button.
If I leave the key in the ON position after the car dies and I just try to press the start button to re-start, I hear a clicking noise from 1 or more relays under or behind the glove box on the passenger. At the same time, i get the following messages: “Track Fault“ continous, “ Check Gearbox “ and for each of those relay clicks, the ”Engine” symbol goes off and on while simuntaneously the speedometer dial makes small jumps.
Any ideas what is going on? I live in Orange County, California, zip code 92648.
Sincerely,
BAJK

I had similar issues with my Brooklands when the alarm module was acting up. If you search the forum , you'll find a bunch of posts about it. First thing to do would be to check the condition of the nicad battery in the siren.

Hello!
Thank you for your response. Very much appreciated! I had the same incling and replaced the siren battery a few months ago, to no avail. Could it be a bad camshaft position sensor, or, HORROR OF HORRORS: a bad ecu?
Thank you again for your response!

So, how should I respond appropriately, letting responder know that I very much appreciate the responder taking his/her time to respond? I am a 70 year old American, taught to be curteous to helpful people.
Sincerely,
BAJK

Just type your response in the dialogue box below the last post. It will most likely be obvious who you are directing your comments to without repeating their post, or you can just say "thanks alabbasi and Jean7 I will check" etc. etc......
I agree with Al it does sound like a problem with the alarm and immobilizer system which has been discussed several times before on this forum. If you do a search you should be able to find other threads where this problem has been discussed in depth. Do you have a Bentley / Rolls-Royce specialist in your area? You will probably end up having to take your Azure to one who has the Bentley Omitec diagnostic box to rectify any fault in the alarm system.

How old is your main battery? Those particular DIP fault alerts are the classic symptom of a failing main battery. Both the main and starting batteries on these models can fail in as little as two years due to the high demands on them. Keeping them on a maintainer is not a guarantee that they will not have a very short life compared to other cars.

Why on earth would you now just quote my posts twice? I have just asked you NOT to quote previous posts when you are replying to a post or posts. What does quoting my posts, and doing it twice, add to the discussion other than clutter the thread for future readers?

I do not know what I am doing wrong here. I am just responding to a post, and that seem to be wrong.
never experienced that before.

I think Jim was pointing your message n° 9 above, if you did not do anything to have those multi quote , that is surprising and yes something could be wrong with site, although it looks like it happenend only with you recently.

In any case , I don't know the way you reply to have quote messages regularly, even your last message.

BAJK, I edited your posts #4 and #5 removing the quoted content and added the note: "Moderator note: BAJK, please note there is no need to quote a previous post when you are replying if you are following the train of thought in the thread. It just clutters up the thread unnecessarily. " I also sent this notification privately to you twice.

Then you posted #6:"So, how should I respond appropriately"

I answered you in post #7: ""Just type your response in the dialogue box below the last post.

The goal is to make the thread easier to read without having to constantly reread previous posts that have been quoted unnecessarily cluttering up the thread.
So, the proper way to reply to a post in a thread is to simply start typing your reply in the dialogue box below the last post where it says "write your reply". Do not click on "reply" unless you need to quote a previous post in the thread for clarity.

I have accidently inserted quotes in the past too. I reckon I hit the reply icon and then typed my response rather than simply responding without hitting anything. I agree that it can be confusing until one gets familiar with the procedure.

Thank you forum.
I am done here. ”Reply” seems to be pulling down a quote. Confusing To say the least. I will go on with my life without this site. That super moderator needs a lesson in courtesy for sure.

Why is there a “Reply“ button if the super moderator hates it so much? Does not make any sense. Remove it for God’s sake! And hire another, less rude moderator…Just a thought. Promise, this is my last post on this site!
