Hey all.

So my car had been sat there for around 3 weeks, and the battery was completely dead. Even the ignition would show nothing. So I hooked up my battery charger and left it over night. Next morning, I noticed I couldn't unlock the car remotely. I managed to start it without any issues though, but now I have noticed:

  • Electric windows not working
  • Mirror controls not working
  • Interior lock button not working
  • Fuel lid button not working
  • As mentioned, remote locking/unlocking not working

I've had a bit of a search and some people were mentioning the 38 fuse in the engine bay? It doesn't look damaged, but I don't have a spare to test this.

Does anyone have an idea of what fuses I should be looking into? As I may as well go and buy a few just so I can swap the fuses that are know to do this.

Change your battery and it will solve all your problems.
What happens is , once your battery power starts to drop, the car puts off one electronic module to sleep at a time. The more dead your battery goes, the more modules go to sleep. The car will still start and you will be able to get to a garage to change your battery but it will be in limp mode until the battery has enough power to supply the entire car.
