Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Hi I'm Kevin let check where your at car starts ok but no remote locking or unlocking correct? What have you tried so far ? Just double check battery the correct way round. Was key working before battery change ? What was the reason for change?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No there is no electrics in car when put key in the ignition , changed battery cause could not get in car in the morning
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Ok it sounds more like the car battery is flat I would recommend you try to charge battery or replace battery on car

cannot open bonnet cause release catch does not come out , it was working ok the night before , how do u get immobiliser off
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

I don't think it's an immobiliser fault as once the key is in ignition the system will relesase immobiliser I believe you have a flat battery as the immobiliser will not stop other items functioning you would still be able to turn ignition on and radio and lights the car just wouldn't start

There is nothing happens when I put key in the ignition
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Yes this wouldn't happen if it was immobiliser everything would be normal the car would try to start the engine would turn over but wouldn't start you have a power problem you need to either jump start ,charge battery or replace
