hi,
what question specifically did you have about this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Steve,
Thank you for your reply.
I have managed to get the car to the technician so hopefully they can diagnose the problem. The key fob was not releasing the transmission from the "P" mode and therefore I was unable to start the car.
The battery is fully charged and I wanted to see if I could over-ride the system in order to start the car. Locking and unlocking the vehicle made no difference.
