Strange sequence of events, hoping someone can figure it out with me.
I was driving home and first noticed after 30 mins of driving the temperature was very, very low. It is winter here in Aus but it's never been that low before.
Then, the battery warning light started flickering, but only when the engine was above 2.5k rpm. I pulled over to check the battery terminal connections and they were fine.
Finally, about an hour into my trip the radio, fuel gauge and temp gauge died. The car still ran and I had lights and indicators but it idled rough and the dash lights were very dim.
Finally got home, checked the terminal connections again (fine) and turned off the car. It wouldn't start again - didn't even turn over.
Any ideas what this could be? Dead battery?
Car is a Mk1 VW Golf
