Just about every car ever fitted with body control units are a pain. Best bet is see another lady who has a classic car, preferably Japanese :-)

I thought earths stu more so with previous cars and been a sparky. Must admit learning all the time with this canbus wiring where one wire controlls several things via signal some of the high end stuff is to do with several sign waves

Pre 2003 had lots of issues with body control unit & water ingress, revised later model with better plastic cover.
Main problem is shite location of the unit in footwell & fact it french made electronics :-/
Even have flash memory issues with these much like the bosch bcu shite on the Pugs.
Awful awful engineering practice for things that can be so simply & reliably controlled ...
