So my VXT intermittently ignores the starter button

 

So I go looking for this yellow relay.

In the boot on the left right?  :tumble:

 

Instead I find this little beauty (which has long since been dead!)

Battery backup for central locking ;)

Imagine replacement long overdue if dead

So where is the famous yellow relay then?

IS this not where it should be?

If it's intermittent check that the connections in the block that the relay plugs into have not been pushed back and randomly touch the relay contacts, happened to me

You posted a set of poststamps, so difficult to see.
Make a picture of the complete left side of the rear clam inside, not just the spare battery box.

 

Here they are (probably removed from the top plastic cover)

I had an issue with the starter button not long after I bought my vx. Turned out to be the connector on the starter button itself.

Think you need to double click on the 3 'poststamps' when the link 1st opens

From the position of the loom, check that it is not behind that battery thing too.
