When this light flashes and you have the correct key then a problem exist in the system, the only way to diagnose this is to use a special scanner to look at the systems inputs and outputs.

SOURCE: problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser

You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

SOURCE: warning lamp

Hi, that symbol is the MIL (engine check light) on the diesel cars. You probably have an intermittant fault, if you find someone with an EOBD code reader - which most garages have. They will be able to read the fault code which will have been stored relating to your fault.
Hope that helps Matt...
P.S If the fault relates to the EGR valve speak with your VW retailer as the car may need a (free I think) software update.

Get you to look next time you wanna start her, see if your 'imobiliser light' still flashing on the dash while engine is cranking. Common problem if light still flashing, security 'black box' faulty. IF light flashing, while cranking engine, bash the dashboard repeatedly, to left of steering column, while cranking, she may start, suggesting 'smart-lock' system needs replacing.

Warning message: ''remote control battery low''


hi, this message is warning you that the battery in the key fob is going flat if this battery goes totally flat you wont be able to start your car as its this signal from the key fob that turns the imobiliser off so with out this fob your car wont start so its best you get the battery changed sooner rather than later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
