Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

I had exactly the same a couple of months back.

Remove the ignition switch, open it up, clean all the contacts and refit. Job done!

The boot you can get access to with the key inside your key fob and removing the cap covering the boot lock.

I like sitting in my hot tub with a beer or two….

I have actually replaced the ignition switch recently hoping that would sort it but didn't make any difference, currently the battery is disconnected as the alarm is constantly going off, not sure why! I've charged it up and tried connecting it back up and the alarm just goes off. Thanks for letting me know about the boot, I was getting worried I wouldn't be able to get my stuff out particularly the wind blocker I paid a lot for. The car has just been declared a write off after my wife reversed off the drive into next doors car!
