Question about Cars & Trucks
When it's cold, it'll start without any problems but after a couple of minutes it'll suddenly switch on the engine management system and make you go slow. Restarting the engine will remove the problem. Today after it happened, I continued my journey in gear 4 and at 40 mph and it did not resurface. Definitely a link with cold weather. Local garage ran the faults machine on it, came up with error P1259 immobiliser to PCM system error. Note: have another key which broke down recently. Pressing the button makes all the windows open. Can you help

Go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the ECU (they do it for free, where a shop will charge you). They'll give you the codes, and you can post them here. Once you do that, I can help you narrow it down.

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

So what's your question?? The codes don't lie, they pinpoint a specific problem that is causing problems. If the codes point you to the immobiliser then I would start there, your always free to get another scan for a second opinion..
