    Hi, thanks for the reply. I understood that the fuse wasa out becuase the central locking didn't work, was just happy to continue locing and unlocking manually until such a time that I had the time and resources to investigate properly.

    In answer to your questions - no....the fob will not unlock or lock the doors at all, no response. And yes, it is the round key fob.

    Very frustrating...mechanical problems I can deal with quite happily...electrical problems are witchcraft.

    Thanks again

    Michael

    Hello....
    I am new to MG's, bought my first one in july of this year.
    I'm in sheffield, UK.
    Have been loving the car, especially in the sun (not so much in the rain, as it leaks a bit (adjustments are ongoing)....not so much in love now, as some immobiliser demon seems to have taken over...I've put a seperate plea for advice in the group on that.
    Hoping to enjoy getting back out on the road in it again soon

    Thanks

    Michael

    Hello, new to the forum and new to MG ownership. I bought an 05 MG TF in July. Loved it, until last week.
    The central locking has never worked, I noticed that this was because the fuse was missing, tried replacing the fuse, and just got a long blast on the horn, so removed it again and decided that I'd just carry on with no central locking.
    All was well until last week. Went to start the car and just got the horn sounding and no attempt to turn over.
    New batteries in the fobs, followed instructions for resynching (though I'm not sure how useful that is without the central locking), tried again - same result...just the horn and no starting. Took battery off, was fully charged but charged it some more just in case. More new batteries in the fobs, same problem.
    After a while, I disconnected the horn for my own sanity and kept trying. put the 15 amp fuse back in the central locking, still wouldn't even attempt a start.

    Eventually found that if i turn the ignition on and then press the keys on the fob a few times, it will start, but this has to be done every time I try to start it.
    I am at a complete loss with where to go next, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Michael
