Hard reset required perhaps? Disconnect your battery and hold the terminals together for a couple of minutes, you'll maybe have to reset your windows and sunroof if fitted when the battery is reconnected but nonetheless worth a try first.

No problem Dave, it's not the worst thing I've ever been called...! You might want to think about investing in a code reader yourself, they range from about a fiver for a bluetooth device up to, well, as much as you want to pay but even a cheap bluetooth one will give you most codes in your PCM if used with free or cheap software you can download to your smartphone. The good thing is you can go armed to the garage knowing most of which codes are present and with a bit of Googling and YouTube actually understand what they mean, a fiver has to be better than 135 quid a pop. 😊

Hi Steve, thanks for that I have put in to jag specialist for a full service anyway so he said he will plug it in on a machine for the faults, any way here we go he has done the full service £260+VAT £35 + VAT fault finding? renewed a water in Diesel sensor £40 +VAT =£529 not happy he didn't even contact me to ask if I wanted the sensor fixing .now getting back to my air vents he said he has disconnected the heater element in the Matrix as when he done this al vents and heating started to work as soon as he plugged it back in it stopped so he said that it is not Required  in this country as its only for colder countries and he has done this to two other Jags in the last 12 months, said the heater will work without it ?don't know if this is true. lets hope it is.:nono: I have a ultimate Warrentee cover for the car that covers wear & tear as well so I might be able to claim on the with a bit of luck .

Just had a look through the wiring diagram. Yeah it would make sense. looks like the aux heater unit has dragged the LIN network down. Vents and actuators all work on LIN. Not come across it myself but will be one to remember! Aux heater is just there to supply heat quicker as its a diesel.

Hi Steve thanks for that information at least I know he I wasn't feeding me bull warrentee company WMS Safe &Sound ultimate car warrentees in most cases cover for all mechanical & electrical  parts even wear and tear,so they say hopefully they cover the water in fuel sensor   .
