It was a nice piece of design and ahead of its time in some respects, but rather poorly implemented.

It has no real selling point other than being rare and therefore a challenge to fix!

Re: Hazard lights under hard braking?

It is a feature and it can be disabled using Planet, though to be honest I think it's best left enabled.

Re: What to do?

I'd be interested to know if virginising this EEPROM just means writing 0s over all of its memory.

This is the case for the BSI EEPROM certainly, but I would like to know if the same applies for the EDC15 one.

Re: Thinking about selling my car

Do you have a link to it? And could you tell where it was coming from? The sumps and cam covers are known for leaking oil on these.

Re: The mystery console button ....

It's an access hole to release the shift lock solenoid which was prone to getting stuck on the AL4 boxes.

Failed bottom engine mount is the main suspect for this.

Re: Halfords Special Offers

Can't recommend the Halfords Advanced tools enough, I've got the 170 piece one.

The couple of times any bits have broken (snapped a T55 trying to remove a steering wheel) they replaced it with no receipt and no questions.
