Hi all, I'm new here but hopeful that someone will be kind enough to help ....

I've recently acquired a vgc yr2000 Z3 and all has been fine ... glorious in fact! But the c/locking has stopped completely! Key remote appears ok (light flashes), neither door nor boot operate with remote, all require manual locking / unlocking.

Fuse 7 (5a) is blown.

I found here or elsewhere that I should check the boot wiring between body and lid on the left and sure enough there were several wires with split insulation. I taped each one and re-sheathed the loom.

Fuse 7 still blows!

So any advice please on what next?

Many thanks. G
