Replacing the battery (or at least getting it checked thoroughly) is a starting point, as XLR's display many gremlins with a poor battery fitted. However, you do state "an outstanding mechanic" and at that point it does point to more serious problems, sad to say. If there are no codes, it suggests wiring loom problems or possibly a defective memory module.
