Re: Control Panel

In my limited experience , push button control panels suffer from dirt etc on the actual contacts. Can you take out the panel ,expose the contacts and apply WD-40?
I had similar problem with push button heating control...it seems to occur when the controls are not used very much......

She very much wants to carry on driving but isn't confident until the feeling comes back to her foot.

Suggest Manxie you look into a pre paid card like Revolut... excellent exchange rates + you can get limited cash out.....
