Hi
I always suspect the battery in those types of scenario. Halfords stores will deal with customers, albeit at a distance

Hi yea i suspected the battery as well but i have tested the battery and that is fine so the only other thing i can think it is the display it self but having trouble trying to find one

When you say you've tested the battery have you tested that it delivers full power and that it has retained its full capacity? I'd take it back to Halfords. If you do any work on the bike yourself you'll probably void the warranty and if the problem does turn out to be more than the display (which it could well be) you'll be stuck with an expensive fix at the least.
