    Okay, I now know how to pronounce it, and I've now bought myself one --
    a 1999 1.4 Chequers version. I seem to be having problems though with
    the key/ignition/electronics, and would appreciate some advice.

    When I unlock the door, get in the car and put the key in the ignition
    it won't turn. I fiddle about for perhaps half a minute before it
    finally does. On other occasions a similar thing happens when I try to
    unlock the boot. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? And what
    is the couple of beeps I hear just after switching off the engine and
    removing the key -- is it the immobiliser coming into play? Help!

    Would suspect someone has tried to force the locks !

    Have you got a spare key you can try?

    The beep is your alarm siren telling you it is knackered

    The alarm is, or the key is?

    I do have two keys, however both give me the same problem.

    Have another look at the wording of the posts, son.

    Mark, 'Mel40', was not aware of my having more than one key.

    Anything useful to contribute?

    The alarm siren is poorly - they go wrong quite often - it beeps to say
    there is an internal battery fault - if you get the fault codes read it
    would probably be code 121.
    As for your key issue - if both keys play up it looks like a lock issue -
    just check the keys aren't bent - you can buy locks to key number so you
    have all the locks the same but if you are going to change the ignition and
    boot lock it might work out cheaper to get a lock set with all locks
    supplied - you need to check with your local dealer for prices.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for that. I've tried putting the key in the ignition and then waiting a
    few seconds before turning. So far it has been successful! Not quite so easy
    with the boot lock though, I still need to fiddle about before it unlocks.

    Thanks for your ideas and suggestions. I guess I should now check out the alarm
