    If your lights on then I would have thought a fault code would be store in which the dealer can check using their Tech 2 :shock:

    yeh just take it to your local vaux garage, they'll plug in tech2 and it should tell u exactly what the problem is. costs you nothing and takes a few seconds to do.

    the bad part is learning how much it'll cost ya!

    doesn't have to be tech2, if any independant garage near you has a Bosch KTS 650 machine then they can do it
