Odd central locking indicator light issue
« on: April 17, 2014, 11:17:23 PM »
Found an odd issue tonight. Had a problem with the turbo vane sticking and went into limp home mode (currently being investigated) but I noticed the little led on the drivers door panel was flashing, as when you lock the door from the outside. After about a minute it kept flashing but every few seconds then it stopped all together.

Any ideas on what this is?

That's the immobiliser LED - did you restart the car quickly to reset the limp mode? If you do it quick enough you can confuse the system into thinking its active when its not...

That sounds about right, it was fine this morning when I got into the car.

Thanks for your help.
