Customer Question

My daughters Rover 200 'R' Reg imobalizer keeps refusing to dis-engage. Key Fob batteries are fine, and as it is so much of a recurring problem, is there any way to by pass it completly?
The car is not worth spending money on having much spent on it.

Ok you can not bypass the system completely unfortunately . Have you tried disconnecting the battery with the key in the ignition where the radio would be on then reconnect the battery this usually will reread the key . I would try this next . Unless the transponder ring around the ignition is bad that reads the key which is also common but you would need the code to be sure. I would start here next.

OK. Thank you for that information, I will try that shortly and see what happens.
Thank you for your prompt reply.

Do you mean with the key turned so as the radio can be heard before disconnection the battery?

Hi There,

Thank you so very much for your help it worked first time.

Could i just ask you please, as the other things we tries in the past, removing the fuse, disconnecting the bettery, then putting th fuse back and reconnectting. and the one with the heater control up full turn ingnition on for 30 sec's then turn off heater and turn key, all worked for one time only and did nothing on further attempts.
Could it have been that the key was not on the first turn that prevented it from working, and finally, the fix you have give is great, and if it goes the same way again with the same process work every time ot will this only work just the one time like the others?

Thank you again for your help I will be giving you the best possible positive feed back.

Kindests regards.
Mike.
