E42?

Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.

Hi

.

Ok thats something to do with the door locking unit.

.

Open the door and remove the plastic clamp holding the seal on and unlip the door seal.

.

Then remove the 2 screws holding the lock on.

Then pull the lock through the port hole and remove the cover on the lock and check the wiring there. Unplug the wiring block and see if it has burnt out as the wirng can burn on there and this causes the E42 error code.

.

If so then you need to replace the door lock and retag the wiring and then that should cure the fault.

.

But if the lock and wiring looks ok then its possibley the main control board on the side at fault here causeing this.

.

Check it out and see what you find if you can and let me know.

.
