Thanks for all the advice re buttons etc........in my first post. Now I seem to have another problem.
The central locking doesn't seem to open the car. I locked it but now it seems stuck. I can unlock the drivers door manually and the car starts ok as well. When you press the unlock remote button the lights all flash like its disarming the alarm but the doors just dont unlock. Yesterday it unlocked from 50 yards away so i dont think its the battery. The spare key doesnt work at all. ?????
Looking on the forum this seems a common problem.
I've also found something else I was messing about with just before this happened. Under the steering wheel there is a footwell light and just in front of it is a clip. If you remove it there is a small module with electrical pins in it. I removed it then just replaced it. No idea what it is.
