hey Ian you are right on the money it was just a matter of moving the position of the key, is there ant way of fixing this or is it a replacement job of the tumbler because it is (simpily just worn out).

Re: ef falcon electrical problems

you will find it is the electrical section so that will need replacing.Being as it has smart lock when you put the new one in you need to leave the key turned on for 30 minutes for it to reset.

no just need the electrics even if you change the lot you will still need to reset it.And also the door locks will need changing.
