Also download the separate navigation manual. There are some things that aren't included in the manuals but don't worry, most are explained on this forum.


I have done so, but as I have NEVER used a SatNag I expect it will remain mostly unread and keep on using maps  8)

Disklok is the strongest option, although a more expensive option.

A recent article I read suggested that these days they are stealing just about all cars, Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage being high on the thief's list. 
JLR, particularly Range Rovers have an issue, but this is related more to pre 2022 versions, which JLR are addressing with a key software update to enable the key go into sleep mode.


Another option to improve car security is to disable the comfort access.

+1 for Stoplock, why target Jazz when you can be off inside 2 mins on JLR vehicles

I dont think you can now avoid doing most of the work  necessary to replace the bulbs.     Have the replacment bulbs available  but you could leave  them in their packaging until sure  the original bulb  has blown. 

A blown sidelight is not always noticed straight away and may only come to light (excuse pun) when  a dipped beam also blows.   And main beam  might still be working. They have  a separate wiring circuit. Some cars have both filaments in one bulb, others have separate bulbs  dipped  and main.       

I'd also recommend having a multimeter to hand.  They can cost under 8 and have lots of other  uses.    If the cause of the problem is not  obvious you can immediately carry out checks  without having to dismantle things twice.

Yeah sorry . I dont want my 'cautious old age'  to entirely suppress  your desire to be creative and make the car your own.   You can learn a lot about car DIY that may save you cash over the years.  Just be cautious, insurers may see things differently.

Other pessimistic  advice.  If you have to travel far, or pay carriage,the costs can add up.  You probably wont get it back in an increased value for the car. Indeed some  things can put potential buyers off and reduce its value. .    Sometimes it may be better to save your money and  buy a newer car that much sooner. It may have advantages that you couldnt retrofit.

And the old joke . If you visit scrap yards take some biscuits for the guard dog ;D

Parking lights are accessible through wheel arch on the front . Could be the connector or earth wire if not bulb . Main headlights not really accessible unless you take it off the car . I had a similar problem headlight was dim and full beam wouldn't work . Found out when I change bulb through wheel arch I'd bent a bulb pin . Had to take the whole head light out to discover that one .

I have a Stoplock Pro Elite which i bought for my previous car (BMW X1) which fitted over the large steering wheel 'hub'.  Fits my Jazz well too, though I believe that the sort that completely cover the wheel provide the best security but are heavy and their size makes storage difficult.

I would never use a scrapper to remove ice from the windscreen as over time it can certainly scratch the glass(lessons learnt from the past)
Switch on the engine, increase the temp setting, hit the windscreen defrost and heated rear screen buttons and a few sprays of a de-icer and it's quickly good to go. Avoid putting the wipers on too quickly as scrapping across ice is not kind to the blades.

My other car has a heated front screen, whilst it's extremely effective to clear ice, the closely set fine wires do add some visual distortion of oncoming lights/headlights when driving at night
