Car had been standing outside since the 6th December 2016 until early January 2017 when my brother drove it about 20miles where it was put into my garage because I had broken my ankle. Anyway I've been given the ok to walk on it & drive again. So today I went over the garage to get the car NOTHING when remote pressed {New battery fitted in fob about a month before}.

Managed to get blade out of remote to unlock car opened door & lights came on & dash lit up pressed start button away she purred no problem. Ran her for about 5mins & switched her off. Locked it by remote opened boot with remote no problem. Very confused & happy never had to buy a battery.

Answers & thoughts on a postcard to....

It's likely the car was in some kind of deep shutdown mode to protect the battery.
