thanks any advice appreciated, cars are alien to me!
If you're handy with a soldering iron then they can be easily fixed yourself. I've done both of mine. There's lots of advice on the Forums about how you do this and the typical faults.
The cards are 'welded' together which means that you need to cut them apart down the seam.

Both of mine are now held together with (clear) tape so that they are easily opened again should I need to (some people glue them back together).

If you want to fix it yourself I can provide the switches (if they are faulty or missing) for a small charge. These are exactly the same as the originals.

The other advice here is also good.
