Thanks @peteinoz

I was thinking last night, do I need central locking, and decided, no.

I'll have a look into your suggestion of a boot popper. The idea of trying to understand a circuit diagram is a bit daunting though.

I'm kinda hoping I can disable central locking by pulling out a fuse somewhere (?).  Any ideas?

On the bright side, I had a poke at the (top) clock button, and the clock now works. I though the temp gauge worked as well, but it went from 21c to -8c in about 5 mins (it was ~17c according to weather reports) then inched its way to 0c by the time I'd commuted the 10 mins from work car park to home car park. Hmmm.

I'd like to get better at car maintenance, after all, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is my favourite book of all time.

Looking forward to a club meeting to meet & chat & learn :-)

Kind regards, Shaggy

Central licking ecu is either in boot phase 1 or behind rear door card rhs on phase 2 or 3. Might not be able to just pull fuse as it might run other things.

Bob might know..

The temp sensor for ambient is under front scoop. They are easily damaged by curbs and guttees. Easy to change out

Cheers

Thanks for the help peteinoz.  I'm going to try some repairs (open the boot) this weekend, in a car park, in Luxembourg (as I am working away from the UK). Temp sensor seems to be behaving itself now. Thanks for the tip on the central locking fuse possibly affecting other things.

Auto has behaved herself so far this week (Manual with the exhaust issue & odometer/rev counter/etc issue, sat in UK).  I think I'm getting used to how she likes to be treated. She has the handbrake mod (allowing roof to go up and down with the engine running). I think she is a bit sensitive to be started when the handbrake is not on. Since I've been careful with her (having everything turned off [heater, blower, lights, radio, etc] and the handbrake on when starting her [in Parked], she has not given me trouble.  She seems to like a specific sequencing/treatment - she's defiantly a 'she'  :) ;)

I was thinking, if/when I get the back seats out and manage to open the boot with a long stick, I might try to thread some string through so if it happens again, I can just pull a piece of string instead of having to take the seats out.  Still, with the seats out, she'll be lighter and therefore more fuel efficient, and I don't really have rear passengers so back seats are could be classed as an accessory  ??? ;D ;D

Got to her today to have a go at the boot lock. She did not turn over - tried, then clickerty clickerty click :-(

USB battery pack jumper starter in boot (x 2).

So, with a 13mm spanner, I took the back seats out. Those head rest plastic things are a pain in a a*** to get off, until one twists them.


The bulkhead holes are a lot bigger than I thought they would be, and I managed to fish out the TACKLife Jump Starter pack (T8). This succeeded in getting the engine started - YAY!!!

I then got a metal coat hanger, fished it through the hole to the silver rod near the lock, and hey presto, the boot released - DOUBLE YAY!!!

Got some stuff out, applied lots of WW40 and shut the boot. Tried the lock, key does not turn anti-clockwise, so locked out

… again.

Fished again easily to release the boot, again.

So, the boot is 'secure', but needs a-fishing through the bulkhead to open.  Hmmm, a security 'feature' I think I will call that  :o ;D :)

Secured back seats was so last week  :-X. Now they'll be replaced, unbolted, for whenever I need to get into the boot.

Thanks for the tips tipsters on getting me this far.

Best regards, Shaggy

Got to her (auto) this morning, and battery was flat (no lights on dash when turning ignition). My small EPower jump starter pack (Model B001) got her started, although maybe the pack does not need to be turned 'on' as it got a little larger (maybe about to burst). 10 minute commute to the office car park, where I disconnected the positive terminal in case there is a drain somewhere. Interesting times.

Re-attached the positive to the battery, started first time. Commuted home, disconnected the battery again. This will be a daily occurrence while I make do while abroad.

Does your alarm work??This is quite often the cause of battery going flat.
The siren is sited in the wheel well behind the arch liner(I think) this gets full of all kinds of crap which kills it's internal batteries the unit then draws power directly from the main battery which results in it being flat every time you try to start the car.
I'm all better now!

Hi scotsdave,

Thanks for the reply.  I don't think the alarm works, as in, I've not heard a siren or beeps or anything when pressing the key fob buttons (even when the central locking was working during those first few days). I'd had a play with the key fob buttons and on occasion they made the side indicators flash in various forms, heck, slamming the drivers door set off the flashing (turning) indicator lights on occasion in the first week of owning the vehicle.

The airbag light flashes on an off now on the console, so I shall turn that to the off position this morning.

Regs, Shaggy

Test for alarm: lock the car and then open the boot with the key and the alarm should sound (phase 3, not sure about the other two)

Beer will save the world, I don't know how, I just know it will!

Hi Pugsley,

Thanks for the reply. The key does not turn anti-clockwise in the boot lock, hence my current work-around to go fishing through the back seat with a clothes hanger to release the boot.  :o
