Crap 😂 yeeah might be, looks like i just have to take the plunge and buy a new handle on the right front door and the trunk. Haven't got the stomach to work on my own cars more than i have to anymore lol.

If that don't help i feel like the next step is to buy a thermal camera and wait for the winter and steady suczero's and see where and what generates heat. i.e stalk down the short.

I noticed this on mine, but has resolved itself on its own now.
My microswitches on the soft-close don't work anymore but this is common. I don't miss it and it's not worth my time replacing them.

Current issue with mine is that the seat position memory switches aren't memorising the seat position. And the boot close isn't latching down fully on close. It looks closed, but you can lift the bootlid without touching the pressure-pad switch in the centre.

Anyone else seen this?

For the bootlid, there is a common issue with a small spring popping off in the latch mechanism. It is a small spring, - maybe 8mm dia and 25mm long.
If you pop out the poppers on the plastic boot trim you can see the latch mechanism. See if the spring is present, if not it probably fell off because the end loop got cut-through by the hook, just bend a new loop on with pliars and refit.
