Ford Courier Van imobiliser stuck on

When I purchased the van it was running perfectly now all of a sudden the immobiliser is stuck on there is now light on the immobiliser switch and the seperate key that you have to use to switch the immobiliser off doesnt seem to be doing anything as after inserting the key into the immobiliser slot then you insert the ignition key in the van will not even turn over if anyone knows of a way to disconnect the immobiliser I would be most grateful.

When the engine is under load it uses more fuel then normal .First replace the fuel filter then check the fuel pressure and flow. the pressure and flow are checked with gauges. For a rough check remove the return pipe from the fuel rail, if fuel is flowing there the fuel system should be ok providing the pressure valve is not stuck open. if there is no flow there the pump may be at fault.

Renault kangoo 1.5dci van will not crank no immobiliser light flashing and starter motor just been replaced and to reprogram the key code do you hold the lock or unlock button on the centre consol

its probably a break in the loom between the battery and starter motor, if you are sure it isn't the immobiliser, try running a live straight from the battery to the starter, MAKE SURE THE CAR IS NOT IN GEAR!! otherwise you could have a nasty accident, If the starter turns and the car starts then you know its a wiring problem, if the car doesnt start and was working before then it will be the immobiliser, as for programming the key, all that is for , is the central locking , the immobiliser chip in the key can only be programmed with specialist equipment

How to bypass an immobiliser on a citroen berlingo van

Try using the old key and place it near the barrel then turn the new key. These keys have RFID that the immoblizer can detect. Once key is changed, it will still look for original key to disable immo.

I have a peugeot partner van 1997, and I want to bye pass the immobiliser, as the van will not start. The red and green light are staying on. do you have any suggestions please? It is with a mecahnical...

Leave it for half an hour with the ignition on and door closed, it should re set (this happens when the wrong code is used for more than 3 times) check for a sticking button, sometimes they go sticky with a lot of use, if you do get the green light just umplug the keyboard when running and it disables the system. If you cannot get the green light try leaving the battery off overnight with the lights switched on then connect the battery, if still no with the ignition on and someone in the car spark the earth lead to the battery untill the green light comes on.

Immobiliser ?????? so i have been told

If, when you switch the ignition on, you get a dash light on, the symbol is a car with a key overlaid, you have somehow activated the immobilser You could try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, this may reset the immobiliser, If this does not work you will have to contact a Hyundai dealer to get the immobiliser unlock code.
