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.

Hi not as simple as that have you checked all the fuses and corresponding relays and wiring connectors there is a web site that gives you the wiring diagrams for the security systems if you are ok with wiring diagrams then you will either be able to by-pass or or put a remote start switch in but as i said it is not a five miniute job if you want i can send you the sites details yates210456

Heater not working,sludge in header tank on ford courier van

Sounds very much like your cooling system is full of ****. It would pay to have the cooling system flushed, including the radiator. If the sludge builds up it blocks the heater tap. This could also cause problems in regards to the cooling system as a whole, and potentially blow a head gasket. Check the color of the sludge. If it looks like a chocolate milkshake, it may denote a head gaset problem, and the sludge may actually be oil in the water.

How do I reset the imobiliser on a 55 escort van?

If by a escort van you are talking about the wagon, in the very backof the cargo space on the passenger side there is a panel. Remove the panel, inside is the gravity switch you nee to reset it . you can do this by pushing in the red button. If you still have a problem it may be a computer problem.
