As a next step, I would disconnect the driver door controls and then see if the remote works. This will determine if the short is in the door. I think you would just have to remove the front smaller plug - be very carefull to release the tabs on these plugs otherwise the wires will pull out!

Also, make sure a button is not stuck down on the remotes.

With a huge assistance from Kevin it looks like we have isolated what the problem is
It appears to be the Keyless Entry Module, as everything kept pointing back to that

I'm going to have an electronic guru friend (whom I work with) test a few things on it (module) to make sure thats what the problem is.
I should hopefully have an answer in a few days time

On a different note, a coolant leak was also found so it looks like a new radiator is going to be on the cards aswell

Once again, I'd like to say a big thank you to Kevin, for all his help today

Regards
Mr Turbo

Thanks mate.
Even though we're not 100% sure, (just 99.9%) it all looks good

However, once I've had it tested, if it's not the problem, it will be back to square 1.

But after looking & checking everything else today, it has to be what the problem is.

Regards
Mr Turbo

I changed the radiator in my Forrie and found genuine was cheapest.

I remember reading about that & was quite surprised to hear that at the time.

If I recall correctly, you had a bit of a wait too, as there were none in the country at the time & had to wait for one to be sent.

Thanks for the heads up Rally

Regards
Mr Turbo

Glad you've got it pretty much, almost figured out.

Sorry to hear about the radiator, but better now than having it let out all the steam in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks carljwnc And yes, better to find out about it now, rather than when I'm out bushbashing somewhere

All in all, I'm actually surprised that I haven't killed my Forry yet, especially with the places I go to & how hard I play in it

Regards
Mr Turbo

Lets hope it is the module. Not sure if they're repairable, lets hope so...
