    Key won't turn - steering lock not engaged

    I think the battery only operates the lock/unlock, there is a sensor inside the key which reacts to the ignition slot, hence the metal key for when the battery dies to get into the car and still start it.

    I believe it's full board, 3 meals a day so I don't think £175 is too high, as said, it is also hoping to act as a deterrent.

    Postcodes - An Explanation

    When we moved into my current house, 43 years ago, the post code was BS15 6DF it is now BS30 8DF. I can understand the first half, they just made the postal area smaller, but I always thought the second half was related to Ordnance Survey. With the building of new houses in the area, we also...

    Key won't turn - steering lock not engaged

    As above, try the spare key first, if that solves it your key may need resynchronising to the car, a fiddly job, have a google, or you may need a new key.

    Microsoft Office

    Thanks for that, but I notice now that MS Office is a pay monthly whereas my old system was a one off purchase, anyway round that even with an alternative product

    Microsoft Office

    Hi all, I recently changed my hard disc for an ssd, cloned the new disc but apparently MS office treats this as a new computer and will not let me write anything. I think it is about time I updated my MS Office, I think mine is 2013 and I cannot find the disc or product key. Microsoft say the...

    No problem watching the tracking, but if they go to the expense of supplying satellite cameras and drones to the racers, it does seem a waste not to use them. But the Americas Cup is good watching, sailing at 50+ Knots
