It sounds like BSI trouble, have a look back through the forum. Hopefully it is something simpler but it's worth a look.

Post: RE: Rear back door air gap??

It's 12 years old and it's a van so it's going to have a few dings. The outside of the door goes further down so just get some more seal on it to fill the gap if it worries you.

Clicking can also be a sign of a bad earth or a stuck starter, have you had a meter on the battery to see what charge is in it ?

Post: RE: Is there a dash light for side lights?

New car dash lights come on all the time so you see them riding round in the dark with no lights on. Dash lights shouldn't be a fail.

Post: RE: Cargo Boxes

25% sounds a bit of an exaggeration, I've read 3% for a roof rack so I would imagine a streamlined box would not add much more than that.

Post: RE: Suspension ans wheel tuning for motorway trip

It might sound a bit basic but have you checked the tyres and pressures ? Our car is older but if a front tyre is a little low it soon starts to pull to that side.

Timpsons made me a new plain key programmed from my 3 button key cost £70. Can't they do the process in reverse using something like the keys available on eBay ?

Be sure to knock the bit into the head well with a hammer before you try to undo it as they are threadlocked and the heads are shallow.
