Ive read the manual over and over but can not work this one out. My Smartlock remote doesnt work, the internal lock button on the dash wont work, intermittent wipers and the car cranks but doesnt go! Im thinking could possibly be a BEM but not 100%. Ive checked all fuses and relay which all arent blown.

Can anybody shed some light on this because Im running out of ideas. Cheers

I would suggest BEM, can you give the spot just above your left knee on the dash a solid slap. While it may not fix it, it can help diagnose it, if the car starts or reacts after or while doing this it will be the root cause. Car cranks, as in starter turns over happily? this rules out the battery at least. can you hear the fuel pump attempt to prime when the car is on reds?




I have a car.
