HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, I assume you have replaced the battery in the remote at this point, correct?

If so, I need to get the last 6 of the vin number to see if there is method to re-register the remote key to the system without a scan tool

Thank you Eric, so tried that as you suggested but still on teetering the car and proceding to attempt to start it still wont turn over... cranks but no start.
The key remote works to open and lock the car with NO problem.
I wonder if the key itself is faulty at the solder... transmitters? Or if the ignition coil could be the problem.
What did Peugeot Planet 2000 show up on the read out?Cheers

HI,

Ok, when you try to start it, is the immobilizer//antitheft light flashing, staying on steady, or goes on and then goes off after a few seconds

How do I identify the immobilizer light? I can't see it in my manual book!
Is it on the main Dash or on the display unit in the middle of the windscreen because that's not always operating very well & I need to get a new one!
AU Auto Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 3 months ago

HI,

It should be on the main dash gage and a symbol with a key in it

I've scoured my 307/2006 handbook and no light shows a key or is mentioned on page 65 - reprogramming the remote control or Electronic Engine Immobilizer sections!
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I'm really sorry, I don't see the icon light you're referring too!

Hi Eric
I was advised to disconnect car battery cables and clamp the ends together for 10mins as this should reset the factory settings or clear computer backlog of error attempts.
It worked! Yeah!But now I discover the rear view mirror auto dimming fluid has leaked into the mirror showing an Air bubble where the Gold fluid is not!
I have to remove the mirror unit off the windscreen clamp. Any ideas how the fixing detach??
