335i Limp

Hi all,

Hoping to get a bit of pre-emptive advice.
Car is a 2008 N54 335i with 34k miles, which I have owned for just over 1 year.
First issue has cropped up, being a partial limp mode with boost and power being throttled from around 3k rpm and rad fan coming on full chat. No major temp issues due to cold weather and a fairly short commute.

Quick research shows water pump failure to be likely. However, the clock and trip computer have been resetting constantly lately which leads me to think the battery is on it's way out. The water pump is obviously electric so I'm hoping it's just the battery at fault.

I have a dcan cable on the way to get some codes off MHD and diagnose further, but I'm just looking to see if any one has also had these - (what I know to be) quite specific problems.

Any heads up or input appreciated.

Cheers
