Pressing the Start briefly to switch on, will only activate about 4 computers, not including Injector ECU , and I believe not the Parking one...
Just a thought...
I thought I'd better add that without running my Clip to double check, the computers that I know definetly don't activate without the 5sec push, are:
Auto Gearbox,
ECU (injection and Aircon),
Variable P.A.S,
Airbag &Pretensioners(inc CC's roll bar).

And I only had to read 500 pages of the manual to come across this info.....
Currently in mcquaterx's garage:
Volvo 740, Scenic 1 1.6auto, Scenic 2 1.6auto, Megane CC 1.9dCi, BMW K1200RS
