new GTV

OH has just got T reg P2 TS to replace her 145 and Iíd like some help with a few things please

Keys, she has one red one with a beeper, and two without, one red with a flat side and one brown. Whatís the best way of getting another one with beeper? Any coding issues?

There is red light on on dash, think itís airbag but previous owner sneakily covered it up with paint so only just noticed it. Any likely causes/fixes?

I read somewhere that the windows should drop slightly when you open the doors, hers donít. Should they? And if they should any common failure points?

Sorry itís a bit long but cheers for any pointers

Hi Mike,

Congrats on the new purchase. The previous owner probably had the airbag light go off a few times and just got sick of having it reset at dealers/specialists, probably not that sinister! The airbag light is qute sensitive and can be set off from simple things like the seat being moved while the ignition is on, the connecter under the seat gets tripped and just needs a diag cable plugged in and reset normally. Hint - only move the driver seat with the ignition turned off in future.

I think (could be wrong though) that the window auto drop feature was only on later cars 2001 onwards, there should be a kit you could retro fit if it bothers you much?

Dunno about the extra alarm box, but I'm sure someone here will point you in the right direction, would think a main dealer could obtain a clone for you. At least it sounds like you have all the right keys though
