Check the battery first. When they start to go dead, it is not uncommon for the BC1 to start having "issues" . It may be as simple as replacing the battery.
Ooh that would be so much easier!Check the battery first. When they start to go dead, it is not uncommon for the BC1 to start having "issues" . It may be as simple as replacing the battery.
Pull off the rubber door seal along the lower sill / doorstep, then carefully prise away the plastic trim panel along the inner sill / front footwell trim with a large scewdriver / rag to protect paintwork. In the photo (see post 9 above) you can see the large round white nylon clips in the bodywork which hold the trim. If you wish to completely remove the trim some find it easier to remove the seat and lower belt mounting. (I normally manage to gain enough access without though).Hi - this seems to be the same problem I am currently having.
I would like to know how you remove the plastic trim panel - any tips? Does is just pull off, do I have to remove the rubber door seal etc.?
I should add mine does have the casing on the top from that picture, is it likely still at fault?
I ask as I have seen in my searching that the refusal to lock problem may be to do with the driver's door lock having a sensor which wears out??
Can anybody advise how I would go about doing this please?If you have the later water shield fitted it is much less likely to be the BC1 at fault so may be worth checking door lock sensor first.
Glad your probably sorted it.Okeydoke.
we took apart the BC1 - and had another look at it. there were some small amounts of corrosion on some of the components, and I cleaned these off with surgical spirit.
Then my husband took the circuit board off the metal back, and there was a proper puddle in there
Since we have dried this off - and everything else - with a hairdryer fingerscrossed it has worked fine.
I have now ordered a cover - costing £1.53 and will be getting this on Wednesday.
Has anyone had continued problems once they have fitted a cover?
Thank you all very much for your help. thats (touch wood) a large garage bill that I couldn't afford saved/
