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...
UPDATE for proximity owners (like me) It doesn't work with the key in your pocket, taken me yonks wondering why it didn't work. One MUST insert the keycard.
