ok, so i finished work and started messing with the car again...
jump started the car which started setting off the alarm straight away again with right indicator always on.
key doesn't work so i couldn't turn it off..
ended up taking the alarm fuse out and eventually it stopped after turning the key few times..
as soon as the alarm was off, the indicator was off too..
now i was back at the original problem..
last night reading few different posts i came across this one that apparentely was telling how to re-program the key if it had stopped working and wasn't a battery issue..
i was reluctant as it's a very simple procedure, however after 20 tries or so it actually worked!!
so now, after 2 years, i can lock and open the boot via the key
1 problem less
i'm still having the vdc/abs error and now the right indicator is faster than it used to be.. left one is the same.
will try and see the other 2 suggestions that were made and see if anything else happens..
PS: sorry David, i have no way of charging the battery properly.. but i never changed it in the 7 years that i have owned the car so it might need to be changed soon.. i'm starting to think that this is what is causing the main problem.. will see..
