i have browsed the threads which relate to the electrical problems i am experiencing but they were mostly written years back when vn-vps were much younger. i'd reckon that more deterioration has occurred and solutions might have changed or improved... so here goes: i recently bought a vp v6 bt1. original and runs well. had been sitting for 18 months and i don't believe the previous owner of 16 years was particularly bothered by these little annoyances. firstly, the central locking is not working. i have three sets of keys. the red light flashes on one of them when the button is pressed but there appears to be no lock/unlocking action. fuse is fine. should i replace a remote battery before i dismantle doors etc? i recently repaired some vs locks and it was a pain in the arse. is it feasible that the problem may be minor and that the locks are still sericeable after nearly 30 years? secondly, the mirrors don't move at all. again, could it be as simple as a corroded switch? the fuse is ok. i know vps are old now but i have a soft spot for them and love things working as they should. any suggestions to sort these few problems would be much appreciated.
