Hello!

I've finally taken my car in to have the Star Diagnostic done on the car and the little electronic gremlins now have a face! I'm trying to get the specific codes off the garage so will post it here as it arrives.

The door handle automatically opens the door, so the sensor works, but the button on the front that locks the car doesnt seem to work and essentially the garage recommends a replacement of the door handle, but i wondered if anyones had experience of this and whether there is something that could be done without having replace the door handle?

Yes i had that with my CL, new handle I'm afraid. Which i replaced and now i can close it on the button not open it. Olly found a wire that had broken in the door loom,also a common fault.
