hi guys, was just out on a 3am maccas mish when i went to put my wipers on, and nothing worked! no front wipers, rear wiper, demister... then went to put my window down to order, and my windows wouldnt go down either!

then i caught my smartlock jewel flashing, not sure how many times it flashed but after a while it stayed on.....

can someone shed some light on this? could it be a BEM issue?

that doesnt sound too good. it might very well be a bem issue as it controls all that stuff. replace it with another one and see what happenes. make sure you remember about the 30 mins it takes to reprogram

uh-oh, its back!!!

the wiper fuse keeps blowing, and the smartlock jewel flashes in 3 sequences of 8 flashes, then pauses and stays on till i turn the car off.

im not the worlds best code reader, can someone tell me what that means?

just put a 30amp fuse in (normal is 15) just to get it to last long enough to put my window up, and it blew instantly :evil: somethings wrong somewhere.

anyone got any other ideas on what it could be?
