    Hi all
    The problem comes and goes. Rain sensors, parking sensors, clock, steering wheel buttons, remote central locking and indicators(the ticking sound) dissapear for no reason. The day before I have installed Dice Ipod kit. Coinsidence? It is disconnected now, but the problem remains.
    Any ideas lads? Where should I start?

    That was fast Deano16v. That ignition switch causes alot of problems? Do you have to replace it or its fixable?
    Thank you.
