Heh yer the key is brand new from dealer. When i press a button the led lights and when i do the sequence the led flashes slowly for 10 secs like it says in the manual. I havent tried the ignition on for 15 mins but i will tomorrow. I still havent got my V5 through the post yet but when i do i reckon a few of the old owners will be getting contacted with a couple of questions
Heavy day tomorrow but will hopefully let you know the results.
Oh and what unit is to do with the central locking behind the glove box? i forgot to take photo whilst i had it out i will next time.
