    Many thanks

    The issues i have are:

    The rear parcel shelf brake light doesnt work, i have changed the bulb and bulb holder but yet the control pannel is still telling me that the bulb has gone. Any ideas or suggestions?

    The other issue is the a/c unit power just keeps dissapearing, and then it comes back on when it feels like it, however it is getting longer in delays before it will come on.
    iv heard that this could be due to the a/c control unit. Is there any way of testing this?

    Many thanks for your help

    Hmm.
    The Parcel shelf brake light is very likely down to a wiring fault. Have a search in the electronics forum on here and theres a thread with pictures of a trouble spot for boot wiring.

    AC unit power. Do you mean it goes cold or the unit actually stops putting 'ANY' air out?
    As in the fan stops?

    I saw yesterday a thread about the control unit by peluca, i know it was talking about the ac unit and changing a capacitor which would fix the air con problem. Would this also fix the same issue as i have? can anyone enlighten me on this?
    I could send the unit away but i will be without air controls for up to 7 days (mail dependent) and with the weather over hear at the moment not something i want to do at the moment.

    Many thanks
