    Default B2961 dtc code

    Hi
    apologies if this is not the correct sub cat for this. Recently had to replace the EGR valve
    replaced EGR valve and after that sweet as, low down power returned.

    So, yesterday (9th April 2012) drove the car in the morning everything normal. Went to drive the car in the evening and its all of a sudden got the following fault

    When i put the key in the ignition and try to start the car its dead although the dash lights up like santas tree, WTF!!!

    If i keep turning the key and hold it in the crank position after a while it suddenly turns the engine over and starts.

    The diagnostics reader found the following fault code

    B2961 position ignition key switch circuit malfunction

    Any body have any idea what causes this mysterious and sudden appearance of the error, or even what it means? It seems to complain about the key in the ignition, well what else would i do with it

    Something else I have noticed is that when the car finally starts and drives, the central locking no longer automatically locks grrrr

    If anyone is interested, I seem to have solved it and if it is as easy as it seemed I'm surprised.

    I have basically replaced the CR2032 battery in each key and all seems fine, weird huh!

    Hmm, see how it goes, when I got my car it had two keys one of which didnt have a battery in it but both worked fine (except you couldnt turn the alarm off), it could be just electrical gremlins.

    Did changing the key battery cure the problem for good Pezzar? I have the same code and non starting problems.
