the problem has occured only once since and i can't pinpoint it,it only seems to happen when the car has not been started for a couple of days, it must be a car which has to be used every day of which i have no problem , i have just returned from a trip to the uk and it drove superbly, it is the only time that the car see's frost as this has happened twice before in the uk,sorry to not been of any assistance hope you find the fault?

Low I.e. Flat battery voltages can cause problems with the body computers and create all kinds of random faults.

First check should be battery condition.

Just a little tip... Its not a good idea to jump start these cars as you can accidentally damage the electronics.
