Smile Espace IV Shutdown - Update

Dear All

Just an update on my earlier thread and many thanks for the replies. After much head scratching the fault was diagnosed as a dead battery (car battery that is, not the one in the remote key card), and as I can already hear the shouts of 'didn't you check.....' the car had been working perfectly the day before, and the alarm, lights both interior and exterior still worked.

I never did try the yellow emergency lever between the seats, but believe that this operates the handbrake only. I guess that's worth checking during a period of less stress (ie now with everything working.

I am jolly glad that I got the fast fit place to change the battery though, took the poor chap 40 minutes to get the old one out and he said he'd never do an Espace again...

Thanks once again for the replies.
