  1. I’ve not had this but I have a couple of things you could check/try if the battery hasn’t fixed it. If you open the fob check if the switch under the Lotus button has come lose - from memory it’s surface mount and one of the soldered pins may have broken or have a dry joint - if so you’ll need to get your soldering iron out to repair. Second idea if that hasn’t happened, is to use some switch cleaner on the dodgy button; try to get it under the rubber membrane on the top of the switch by squirting it into the side if you can.
  2. How about taping a long strip of paper to the inside lip if the boot before hosing down the tailgate? The wet paper should indicate where the gap is... Just a thought.
  3. There’s a vent pipe between the cabin and the boot, so if you use a smoke device it’s likely it’ll also get into the cabin. Have a look at item 2 below: Have you tried applying chalk to the rubber to see where no contact is Being made with the boot lid?
  4. I haven’t found a solution for this online but it looks like the problem is between adjacent layers on the touch screen so it might be rather difficult to get air circulation to clear the moisture out. It might be that you can improve things with a hair dryer or you might need to pull it out and see if you can replace or separate the layers to clear it. Hope this helps, Steve
  5. In that case, the easiest way would be to find an original replacement. Change the camera first to see if it fixes it, if not then change the control unit too.
  6. Did your car have a camera fitted originally? I did, so when I updated my system I ended up with a Kenwood HU with an Alpine HCE 105 camera - I found a new old stock one on eBay that meant I didn’t have to change the control unit (which would otherwise have to come out if you go to another make). It just save a bit more messing about but if you didn’t have one from standard you have free reign. I suggest you have a look at the reviews first though because I’ve heard that some have terrible low light performance.
  7. Water gets into the electronics and causes a number of issues before the whole regulator fails. If you take the panel off and remove the regulator it’s sometimes possible to open it up, get rid of all the water and clean up the affected contacts. There’s a guide below that shows the disassembly process for a different fault that may help: If not, unfortunately you’ll need a new regulator assembly.
  8. Have you noticed whether the door indicator on the dash functions as it should? If it shows up as open (even if the door is closed) or vice versa, it usually indicates a micro switch fault. If the indicator and courtesy lights work properly, it’s usually the regulator at fault. Hope this helps, Steve
  9. I did this myself when I got my car. Definitely a bumper off job to replace original camera as screws are not accessible (even if you had small hands). Easy enough to remove but a little time consuming.
  10. Don’t - it wasn’t obvious...... but glad it helped!
  11. Hi Dave, My first thought was whether you’ve blow a fuse? This has happened to others on here when fuse C3 had blown (but it might also be the CDL module). Hope this helps, Steve
  12. I don’t have any experience of the one you mentioned but I purchased a Kenwood DNX5160DABS about a year ago and am very pleased with it. It has CarPlay, a Garmin sat Nav with free traffic subscription and many other toys.
  13. Congrats - looks to be a lovely car. Noticed in the description that the car has afterburner rear lights. In case it helps, I seem to recall that Gregs Race Parts halo lights have been linked to TC light issues see:
  14. I don’t know the thread spec but the head is 24mm A/F in case it helps.
