Hello

1st try disconnecting the main battery again and short the two battery cables together for 20 mins to reset all the systems

and check that the main earth connection to the car body is clean and tight

then as you have no fob to reset try entering the EKA code again

just to ensure the EKA entering instructions are:

Using the key, turn the drivers door lock (clockwise) to the LOCK position and hold it there for at least 5 seconds. Then return the key to the centre position. It is now possible to use the key to enter the numerical value of the four digits of the EKA Code as follows:

1. The first digit of the code - Turn the key fully, as far as it can go, anti clockwise to the unlock position (the doors will unlock) then back to the central upright position. This should be done the amount of times as the first digit of the EKA code.

2. The second digit of the code - Turn the key fully, as far as it can go, clockwise to the lock position then back to the central, upright position. This should be done the amount of times as the second digit of the EKA code.

3. The third digit of the code- Turn the key fully, as far as it can go, anti clockwise to the unlock position then back to the central, upright position., This should be done the amount of times as the third digit of the EKA code.

4. The fourth digit of the code - Turn the key fully, as far as it can go, clockwise to the lock position then back to the central, upright position., This should be done the amount of times as the fourth digit of the EKA code.

5. Once the EKA code has been entered correctly, turn the key once to the unlock position then fully return it to the central position. wait 5 minutes before you open the door.

6. If the code has been entered successfully, the anti-theft indicator light will stop flashing and the engine can then be started.
