A wee update for you.

There was a short found, which was draining the battery, plus the auto electrician replaced the battery as it was on its last legs.

One thing I only noticed recently (I've only been using the Vel with passengers in daylight hours), is that the interior lights are only coming on with the driver's door opening.

I presume this is related to the battery replacement procedure, is this something which can be remedied in a similar vein to the windows?

If its a 'return to dealer' job, it can wait until after Santa's visited!

Thanks again in advance.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
