Hi Stephen,Early RA had problematic immobilizers.The module is mounted on the frame behind the LHS of the instrument cluster.There is a harness going from it to the key reader, sometimes the lead has a poor connection, or the module needs replacing.There should be a code set, can you get that read please?Gary
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How to this code mate ? The cable going to the key read is 2 cables with a push together connector , maybe not a good connection ?
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
Yes, if you can see the cable, release it and refit to see if any difference.You need a scan tool like TECH2 to read what codes (DTCs) are set in the vehicle.Gary

No good still mate ????

Hi Stephen,Like all cars now, you need to have a TECH2 scan performed to see what codes are stored.Until you have this done, we are only guessing.It is ALWAYS the first step in diagnosis.Gary
