Aha! Right then I'm with it, I think!
Don't worry - you're in good company with old and rambling - I have a reputation amongst my customers for talking (a lot), going off at a tangent (Ronnie Corbett in that chair anyone?) and coming back, and getting a bit of work done too. Good job I work on a price, not on an hourly rate, they'd never have me back!!!!
So we could have a whole host of functions that are off line right now, along with the alarm.
But what could - possibly - maybe - if we're lucky - be the case is also that the alarm will now be quiet as the handshake to the key immobiliser has happened? And there is no longer a problem?
I'm with @QinteQ on sod the neighbours, the problem needs sorting and there is only one way to know.
I am presuming you are normally a respectable member of the community - as you clearly care because you haven't just done it up to now, so if they can't accept that poop happens, and to sort it may cause a bit of noise for a short while this afternoon, or in the morning, well knickers to them (but perhaps not at 11 tonight )
Stick that fuse back in and have the door open ready to shove the key in !!!
Let the car see the transponder in the key, at ON position, and hopefully you may be good again - fingers crossed.
I'm just youngster at almost 54, but we've been keeping ourselves very much well out of circulation, with our twin 7 year olds!
And I quite agree we have been so lucky compared to a large number of poor people.
Not my direct friends or customers, but some only once removed, have died from it. Awful.
A bloke I do know was on a ventilator - that really is an understated thing isn't it, it's ruddy life support - but came through, about a month ago, and he is still totally crock now.
I'm a heating & gas engineer (well currently, but I quite like this semi retirement pace!) and have lots of elderly customers, so made the decision to stop working around 16th March, as I did NOT want to carry that virus around into peoples homes. No matter how careful you try to be, it could happen.
I have been to a very small number of breakdowns & leaks, but only if I couldn't talk them through sorting it. One 87 year old lady I went to didn't reckon she was up to pulling the washing machine out
Those hand wipes I used for muck and oil turn out to be anti bacterial too!! Shame it's a virus, but I'm informed it'll still get killed by them.
