  1. HI THERE I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WHEN LOCKING THE CAR WITH THE KEY FOB THE HAZZARD LIGHTS START FLASHING AND WONT STOP UNTIL YOU UNLOCK THE CAR SOME PEOPLE ON THIS WEB FORUM SAID IT MIGHT BE SOME OF THE MICRO SWITCHES LOCATED IN VARIOUS PLACES ON THE VEHICLE I TRIED THIS TO NO AVAIL STILL SAME PROBLEM DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, SO THE ONLY WAY I HAVE FOUND IS TO LOCK THE VEHICLE WITH THE KEY ITSELF PROBLEM SOLVED FOR ME ANYWAY. IF YOU DO FIND AN ANSWER LET ME KNOW. AS TO YOUR REAR BOOT IF ITS THE SOFT TOP VERSION OF THE KA LIKE MINE I HAD THIS PROBLEM AND AGAIN THIS WEB FORUM IS A GREAT SOURCE OF INFORMATION, I WAS TOLD THAT WHEN YOU PUT THE HOOD BACK UP AND CLOSE THE STEEL COVER WHERE YOU SOFT ROOF GOES IN IF BOTH SIDE OF IT DONT LOCK DOWN PROPERLY YOU CANNOT OPEN THE BOOT SO HAVE ALOOK AND MAKE SURE IT LOCKS DOWN BOTH SIDES THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO OPEN THE BOOT WITH YOUR REMOTE. HOPE THATS AS CLEAR AS MUD LOL...........

  5. HI GUYS AS A NEW MEMBER HELLO TO YOU ALL AND HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME..... I HAVE JUST PURCHASED A STREETKA ON AN 2003 AND HERE ARE THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS 1) CANNOT CONTROL THE HEAT COMING INTO THE VEHICLE FROM HOT TO COLD ALWAYS WARM AIR COMING IN / AIR CON DOES COME ON WHEN PRESSED BUT ONLY COOLS DOWN SLIGHTLY DOES NOT GO ICE COLD. AM GETTING A TAD HOT!!!!! NO WARNING LIGHTS ON DASH BUT ENGINE DOES SMELL HOT. 2) WHEN USING CENTRAL LOCKING ALL WORKS OK AND THEN APPROXIMATELY 20 TO 30 SECONDS THE INDICATORS START TO FLASH BUT NO AUDIABLE NOISE, IF I LOCK THE VEHICLE WITH THE KEY ALL IS WELL NO PROBLEMS. 3) RADIO/CD NO ABLE TO PICK UP ANY RADIO STATIONS. WELL HERE IT IS WILL AWAIT YOU RESPONSES CHEERS JOHN....
