Dear customer from the error code I would also suspect that the problem is the unit, to my mind £1300 is a reasonable price for all the work including the module delay, although certainly this procedure can be carried out in an external workshop including the model you can and felling secondly buy it over the web like via ebay page to get the best prices.

Before replacing the module I always recommend doing a good check of the electrical wiring and connections as they often cause interference with the module signal and cause the same symptoms you are experiencing.
