Hello again folks, same old topic but maybe a clue helps... Go for a drive for a couple of miles. Stop, switch off have a cup of coffee, or leave her for a couple of hours, doesn't matter she starts, not immediately requires a second or two to fire but away she goes. Drive long enough, for the engine to warm up (eight miles or so) park up and bingo Quick start required to wake her up. Goes like the clappers warm or cold, I am fairly sure it's not machanical, lets face it the old girl is 60% computer hardware, 20% software, 10% cable and 7% mechanical (have excluded the carpets). I have bought another GV (with gear change problems as a donor (2006) with the intention of switching out sensors one by one, does anyone have any ideas before I start the swap overs or which sensors, solenoids I should start with ? The donor has an electric rear door so was thinking of swapping this but it's a different colour (green) and has privacy glass so have filed away as a to do (maybe). It also has a multi cd player as well as the standard cd player (same radio and cd as mine) so another question, can I just fit the multi cd to mine or will the ECU or whatever throw a wobbler ? Also, removed the fuse box from the donor and there is a relay behind it (against the flitch), cables appear to be LG/RD TN/LG LG/BL DG/BL my colour sense on old cables isn't the best but have searched both LG and DG combos; have searched the manual and these colours doesn't make sense (mind you there is a lot in the manual that doesn't make sense....) I am inclined to pull the fuse box on the old girl and see what's hidden behind that one! suggestions greatly appreciated. Richard
