Re: Garden tidy 2x 406 estates

Thanks for the kind offer Ian, the side lights have come back since, and then gone again!!

Will probably be moving it on now, let someone else figure it out!

Re: Side lights randomly work and then don't

cheers Lozz, it's an original radio, haven't looked at the divers footwell wires yet, so that could be next.

But, went out to it today, and as if by magic, I had side lights again ! ? !

Re: Garden tidy 2x 406 estates

Hi All,

Sadly, I am back to square #1 with this COM2000 as again I have no side lights!

There must be something else causing these units to malfunction......

Re: Garden tidy 2x 406 estates

Ian's COM2000 arrived today, job done, pending a proper test drive tomorrow, so far so good!

Many Thanks Ian and everyone for advice etc.

The only casualty I suffered so far is a broken cigarette lighter...... how ARE you supposed to reconnect that little #@$£#^*

?

Someone else we know did this and the cost was quite reasonable on the basis that the learnee is not driving alone? We are just about to insure our 17 year old daughter to lear...

Re: Garden tidy 2x 406 estates

The part numbers are not important, only the functions ( fogs, rear wiper, auto lights, trip computer etc ) and if it has ESP.... 8) That's interesting, I thought I had to find the exact one! Ian, mine does not have cruise control. It does have auto lights, auto wipers, front and rear fogs and audi...
