I had an intermttant immobiliser problem that has moved from inconvenient (would not allow the engine to start for 10 mins after stopping the engine running) to down right annoying (2 days in a row will not allow the engine to start unless I leave it in excess of 4 hrs to reset).
When I turn the key in the ignition, all usual dashboard ligts come on, then when I try to start engine all lights etc go out, no starter, nothing.
As soon as I release key back to run position all lights etc come back on.
I have a UK spec vehicle with the factory alarm unit.
I don't normally use the alarm, just lock the vehicle with the power lock button on the door.
Clearly there is something wrong with the immobiliser.
I have been told that it is possible to re-wire it so as to disable the immobiliser. I have fitted car alarms to a number of vehicles, and am competent at electrics, but I don't have a wiring diagram or the knowledge of the immobiliser/security system. Is this something you can assist me with?
I have had the vehicle from almost new, it's really useful for luggng loads, even used it once as an ambulance for my father in an emergency, and apart from this problem it's totally reliable, so I would hate to have to get rid of it
Many thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
