Hi everyone, please help me out of this embarrassing situation.
I have just bought a 2005 (55 plate) 307 cc. Picked it up this afternoon, stopped for fuel and drove it home. It drives really well, although it's slightly scruffy in places. Anyway, I arrived home and switched it off.
I then wanted to show my wife how the roof opens, but it wouldn't. Maybe the engine needs to be running (does it?) so I went to start it.

Nothing. :confused:

Well, I say nothing, there was the click of a small relay from the glove box area. The battery seems fine as the windows all work, as do the headlights, even when I turn the key.

Gut feeling is that some sort of immobiliser has kicked in, but I could be way off the mark.

I tried disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, but all this did was clear the clock settings.

Central locking all works fine, although one thing I have noticed is that the driver's door window doesn't rise that last 1/2" when I close the door. I'm pretty sure that worked when I bought it.

There's no handbook with it, so I don't know where to start looking for fuses. I know there's a panel behind the glove box, and one under the bonnet near the battery.

Do any of you experts have any idea where I should start looking?

Many thanks in advance.

Handbooks here, select your country top right
Thanks for that. As for the starting issue, it turned out to be fuse #8 was blown. Looking around it seems to be a common fault. The above handbook says it should be 20A but mine was only 10A. It's 20A now. :thumb:

It's still not home and dry though, the driver's window started playing up. I took off the door panel(I'm not the first to do that, the connectors to the switch panel showed signs of bodgery), removed the motor, buggered around with the wires all but gave up, manually closed the window and put it all back together. It now works but for how long, who knows?

The next issue is the heater blowing out hot air all the time. It's mentioned on here elsewhere so I shall dig around and take a look. :eek:
