    Knackered door catch, if you've managed to change the problem to an intermittent one then you must have touched on the what's causing the problem

    Ah my apologies I thought you had stripped the door catch. Are all of the pins in the multiplug free from corrosion? It's also worth cleaning up the door catch as there have been a few threads on here about the same problem and it's turned out to be the catch at fault
