Guys

I've recently had several problems with my electricals
First the boot would't open
I replaced the boot lock mechanism for no reason as it didn't fix the problem. I traced the wire into the REC and as soon as I unplugged and replugged the connectors it started working again.

I started having the same issue with my rear indicator left. It will go out and I get inspect 2 on the dash. I checked it and again the globe was fine. Again XR1 connector reinsertion brings it back to live.

Given the inconsistencies, I decided this could be related to a bad REC.
Does any one know enough about them.
Do they need programing once replaced.
They're very expensive new.

Or am I even looking in the correct place for this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.
