My T5.1 has just developed its first fault. When i lock it with the plip, the red led in the door, next to the locking stalk just glows brightly for about half a minute,until the interior light fades out, at which point it starts flashing normally. Everything else seems ok, doors lock and the flashers flash as they should.
I've read on here about the convenience module playing up but nobody seems to have had this symptom. Has anyone any suggestions? Its just over 3 years old. Any help appreciated,Thanks.

As you suggest, it indicates a locking system fault. It won't be the convenience module, as a facelift T5 doesn't have one. You will probably get more clues by having the diagnostic codes read.

Thanks Triffic. I established that the n/s side door was locking, but not deadlocking. Sprayed everything i could see with silicone and operated it a few times, assisting it by pressing the plunger next to the handle, and its ok again, for now..
