You need certifying straight away sir. What’s it need doing? 

it's pissing out LHM

need a direct connection to the fuel solenoid to get it to start

heater fan is broken

central locking is quite broken

many electrical issues

random wiring everywhere

otherwise, no idea.....

don't the series one have the dodgy earth connections , which swapping usually clears up the gremlins.

?

i've heard the same, don't mind sorting the electrical side......i'm a fairly experienced burglar alarm installer so quite used to fiddly wiring lol

firstly i need to work out why it won't start normally

potentially an aftermarket immobiliser that's failed? it would make sense

i know it needs quite a few new parts fitting relays etc which should be fun

park switch on the selector or box>?

nope it knows what gear it's in by the little screen

i suspect it may have an aftermarket immobiliser that's broken

or a failed solenoid

One of the worst moments of my driving life was being hundreds of miles from home with the ex and a baby Eva with the XM and it suddenly going stone cold dead when we went to leave where we were... Turn the key, nothing! 

A frantic 10/15 minutes happened and then I realised it wasn't fully in P (dash indicator bulb didn't work on mine, caught it in the sun and it didn't say P) 

Shove on the shifter, a small clunk and voila, fired right up 😂

@Mrs6C/ @Six-cylinder's XM had/has the same issue and no matter where I moved the gear lever I always ended up in reverse somehow LOL

eventually I just swore at it (sorry! LOL) and moved the gear lever all the way to the bottom which I knew would be 1st, et viola it worked and I could finally get myself to the toilet at the FoD LOL

(it still amuses me that the one gearbox I had trouble working/operating, was a bloody automatic LOL)

all good fun tho :)

Sounds like you’ll need a source of parts…
