No offence taken (on my part), and fair point - but I do find the format of the manual somewhat tedious, but you're not wrong.
This morning, I dropped the lads off at school, and with 1 hour before a dental appointment, I had time to drop some cards off at the Post Office - one was for Australia, so needed 'handling'.
Person handling the Post Office side wasn't in for another 15 minutes' time, so I returned to the car, still at minus 3C.
I keyless enter the driver's side, don't fire up, and press the display intensity to get the radio - on it comes.
Within ~1 minute - wasn't counting - the doors lock / arm, and the alarm goes off!!
I tried the start button - immobilised.
I took the fob out of my pocket and pressed unlock - alarm off, doors unlocked.
I had noticed that previously when keyless entering the driver's side, the mirrors would open when I opened the door (I always hold the lock button to fold them to avoid damage), but lately they weren't opening (no they weren't frozen closed as they would open when I fired up the engine).
Since 'the alarm event' this morning, the mirrors have folded out again on opening the driver's door.
I'm going to put it down to the cold and hope all is well ... but don't think this is a 'Manual Moment'!!
