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.


Mmmm dont know about that one Paul, but has the car reverted back to only the drivers door being opened by one press of the keycard? ... if so I seem to remember they are connected so it may well be a dealer visit to the CLIP machine.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
