    That bus runs among, other places, to the alarm connector you just changed as well as that 'bluetooth' access connector (6pin whitish connector) located under the seat close to the alarm connector.
    It usually comes with a blanking plug if not used for any accessory.

    Thank you.
    I don't recall a white connector under the seat, but will have a look and see what I can find.
    At least its an easy one to get to!

    I found the white connector under the seat - as it's not in use it was tucked away.
    Although it looked fine when apart, I gave both halves a thorough clean anyway.
    Unfortunately, the clean didn't fix the Home & Mode buttons.

    I remembered I have a box called a "Dealer Tool" which plugs into the diagnostic plug and allows access to various servicing items.
    It can also list any fault codes, but no fault codes were stored.

    Is there anything else you can think of I can try?

    The DealerTool uses the CAN bus extensively and it also has a series of tests that can be performed as well as a real-time status update of different function.
    I could only suggest that you run through all of those tests with the DealerTool and see if there are any unusual results which might give you a clue as to whether the CAN bus is faulty or some other problem.
    Other than that, perhaps a review of the connectors  you previously cleaned.
    Be aware, the DealerTool requires a older version  COM port driver in your PC which you must load to temporarily replace the Windows current driver. Google it or use the DT website for tips on what to do to replace the driver.

    Laterally unstable unless moving.
