UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 11 months ago

When all doors are closed and you lock up the car does the red light have a slow flash .

When you insert the key and switch to ON the light should go solid then when cranking should go out .

If it starts to flash fast the key has not been recognised .

If it stays on solid then you have an internal immobilizer module malfunction ..

Here you will need a diagnostic scan tool that can communicate with the immo system.

You may have a problem with the Antenne or the module itself .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i/we will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .
Before rating poor or bad please get back to me as i'm here to help you, if i can't i will opt out so another expert can.
We want you to be happy with an answer and help you with your problem . Want you to be a happy motorist .
After rating there is no further cost for any other question relating to this problem
Kind regards Greg..

Greg
