|My Car is underpowered, the engine management light is on, and I can hear blowing noises!||This has been reported enough to be worth mentioning, so far it seems to only have effected 225's....follow the metal turbo pipe across the top of the engine bay down to the front of the car, the connecting rubber pipe may have come off simply because the jubilee clip was loose....refit and tighten it!|
|WINDOW DROP ISSUES||
Information here:- But
personally if you are having rollback issues I would try Halfords

before getting a dealer to adjust it!
Worked well for me!

|How to Recode keys||My version
You will need BOTH of your "switchblade" keys to reprogram one or both of them.
1. Take the key you DO NOT want to program and put it in the ignition. Turn it one click forward, ignition on, dont start.
2. Close the door, insert second key into the lock and lock the drivers door with the second key by twisting to the lock position, do not use the button.
3. On the second key (the one in the drivers door) press the 'UNLOCK' button TWICE only. The lights will flash on the car, but the doors will remain locked.
(TWICE is so the system understands there are two remote keys, if you do it ONCE only, the key in the ignition will be de-programmed)
(If you are doing one remote key using a plastic wallet key then only press once)
4. With the second key still in the drivers door, unlock then lock the door again by twisting it , NOT by using the buttons.
5. Pull the key from the slot and test remote functions.
( it may only function to unlock while the other key is in the ignition)
6. Open drivers door, remove key from ignition.
(See Step 3 re this note)
If both of your remotes don't work, do the above for the first key, but on step #3, press the 'UNLOCK' button twice. The lights will flash twice, then continue on with step #4.
AFAIK this is only to get remotes to functions to lock/unlock the car, coding for the immobiliser is still a dealer visit.
