Re: button under key barrel ?
what im trying to ask is what else is it for apart from turning sidelights on ? when the key is pressed in , it press`s the button also , but what is it switching ? its not just for the side lights that is an additional use . is it to do with the chip in your key?
this the story i read about the sidelight usage , so i thought that i would try it after i filled it with some fuel . i tried it and it put the side lights on , no problem . but went to start my car it would not start ha d to push it out of the petrol station , parked up and keeped trying a few times , after 5 mins it started up but the dash said engine control unit failure but the engine was running fine .
did this for a while , stopped the car , started it and the warning came up for a minute or so , drove home , stopped car left it for a while . tried again started up then with no warning , back to normal .
so no answers saying you answered your own question mate , thank you .
as i said before what else does this button switch apart from the side lights . others cars have them too i you look but they do not swithch the side lights on and off for parking .
if you have no technical knowledge them dont answer please .
yes i am technically minded iv changed my own timing belt and tensioners myself .
