    Hi. is there an easy test to check operation of fuel flap solenoid. All doors lock/unlock as normal but fel flap does not work. It is in the unlocked position at moment and button on dash does'nt appear to do anything

    Check fuse 14 BECM it will only work with ignition off.

    Not spectacular. Loch has just reopened after being shut down for a couple of years to clear an algae infection. Slow to say the least. Only fished one day bloody near killed me. Wrong time of year to be honest water needs to cool a bit. ;)

    I had the same thing on mine, ended up that the plug/wire had come off at the push button

    No key can be in, but ignition must be off.

    Check the plastic lock bit that holds it closed isn't broken, if it is its only about £3 to get another and its a push fit I think?
