i got my GTV last saturday!! I've not used it yet due to having no tax till 1st march!!
While tinkering today I noticed a couple of faults that I weren't made aware of when i bought the car!!
1) no chirp or any other kind of noise from the alarm, indicators flashed during arm/disarm & no siren noise at all when panick button pressed, again, indicators flashed. So after a quick seach on here for alarms I located mine which turns out has been replaced by another make of alarm.
Basically the connections & some of the wiring looked buggered, so out came the wire snips, crimps & new connectors, 20mins after popping the bonnet & now it works as it's meant to
2) central locking not working properly, I thought the doors locked but noticed that when the button thing on the top of the door went down they popped stright back up. I tried the key in both door locks, sprayed loads of WD40 in both locks, stood constantly locking/unlocking both locks with key dozens of times.
Did seem to operate slightly better but still didn't lock properly. So i took both door cards off, sprayed WD40 all over the moving parts again, very carefully put the door cards back on & hey presto!! Central locking works perfect
I bet i spent no more than 1.5hrs sorting both of these. Oh & that also included fitting the new passenger side wing mirror as the original casing was cracked a bit more than i liked!! lol
All i've gotta do now is fit the new drivers side front sidelight/indicator unit once i've picked it up from royal mail sorting office on monday
