hi, new member introduction
hi all, my name is karl and i drive a '96 spider.
i have had the car for about 3 years and it has been great to drive and very reliable, unfortunateley that has just changed, hence why i'm here, i could do with some HELP!
for a couple of months when i try to start the car the code light doesn't always go out first time, then last night i set off to go to kent, car started fine at home, stopped at garage to fuel it and took a few tries before it would start, had to stop at a friends before i hit the motorway and when i went to leave the code light would not go out at all. after several tries and an hour later still no joy, so i called the wife and asked her to bring me the spare keys including the master key, tried all of the keys still no joy!!
eventually had to call the RAC, he took off the cover and cleaned the receiver around the ignition, this did the trick and it started.
however tried to start the car this morning and the same problem again, key code light wont go out!!!!
can anyone please tell me if there is a simple cheap solution to this as i have recently lost my job and have very limited funds at the moment.
