Hi

The battery was fully charged but car was dead. I could hear clicking in the car and it would not lock. I put the battery back on and everything is working again now. So thanks.

It may have been a relay or something sticking. That is the type of noise that in made.

Thank John

Glad you got it fixed , does sound like a relay .Often disconnecting / reconnecting solves a lot of glitches . Thanks for updating the forum .
