Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.
Does the vehicle have a full service history and can you tell me what that is?
Some times the oil level will indicate low, especially if the engine had just been run, switched off and then restarted. It can also sometimes be damaged during servicing if for instance the ignition is switched on whilst the oil is draining.
Thanks. That makes sense because I have tried switching everything off and on again when the fault occurs and it has often recovered.
In any case I can always double check with the dip stick.
I will mention it next time it goes for a service.
Have you any views on the wing mirrors sometimes not unparking when the engine is started and does manually unparking them do any damage? It is a very minor inconvenience since the convenience of having automatic wing mirrors far outweighs the accasional glitch in their operation. It seems as if it might be overshooting the stop latching point.
If the mirrors have worn drive gears on the motor then this might happen. You might be able to still hear the motors run when the mirrors don't move which would suggest a worn gear.
Not sure about opening them manually would cause damage to the drive or not.
