Video wouldn't play on either PC or iPad.
If doors are open and engine running, then suspension should be Soft.

Well after a 2 year layup and autobox swap as documented here we put her in for mot which came back with a couple of advisories..

Now. Addressed as they weren't hard issues were now pleased to have 12 months of troubles ahead of us.. Or no troubles.. We shall see..

I need to get back under at some point to clean up rust spots on pipes to prevent future bursts.. Lots of white spots on them.. But aren't an issue at the very moment.

Issues.. Yes some rolling issues..
1.no central locking or alarm cancel feature. I've not checked to see if the fuse is missing yet.
2. Autobox is very good generally but has got a 3rd to 4th change issue in auto and manually.. I'm led to beleve its possibly a broken spring in the valve block, I have a spare block from the original box so will practice opening up. If I Remeber rightly there's a gasket of sort in the area I need to get into.. Can't remember.
3. Abs is fun. It's on with first start.. But goes off with second ir third start. If its off it currently doesn't cone in under any braking.
4. Rear brakes could do with a bleed up to strengthen them up a bit. They passed brake test but could be better.
5. Find a throttle plastic link for the cruise control cable to throttle lever. I might have one but need to check.

So.. Another Xm gets into the road.

Well done, presumably the battery holding clamp was missing, or loose and the spare wheel carrier just needs showing the welder and a coat of paint.

Those two make it a pretty short list of advisories for a car with 262,000 miles.

Central locking is fed from F34 which is a direct connection to battery positive.. There IS positive power to the fuse at all times so this then means I have central locking issues else where... So further investigation is needed else where. It could be the texton box I think I've got others to try.

Electric mirrors also don't work.. However this is a switch issue. The direction part feels a bit limp and doesn't spring back to position.. So I'll try another switch. Plenty here they were used on xantias too..

Hydractive also doesn't work.. Sliding the switch the lamp doesn't illuminate.. Hydractive also shares F34 too.. Maybe an earth issue. Relating to locking and suspension.

Time to study the electrical diagrams and see what I can work out

Perhaps the power is being lost at the output from the fuse box.

Yea I need to find the central locking box and pin it to see if it's receiving the power. I assume the S2 uses the same box as the S1 cars and is. Above the parking break release lever.

Afaik, it is mounts there.
You could more easily check for power at the Hydractive Ecu.

The internal fuseboxes don't normally give trouble.
Has anyone messed with the central locking at some point?
