Question about Cars & Trucks
My keys got wet
Can try, open fob and use a hair dryer to dry it out, could put it in a box (like a small oven) and just use a gentle heat, I have dried out ECU's like this, hand dryers are great for this. Hope it works

After ages searching finally found this on the Cobra site.... A8510 KEY PROGRAMING Ensure the immobiliser is disarmed :- 1) Switch the ignition ON and OFF three times then back to the ON position within seven seconds. 2) The LED on the dashboard will light up signaling the unit is in programming mode. 3) Touch an already programmed key onto receptical, the LED will extinguish for one second 4) Repeat step 3 for all other keys (Max of 4 touch keys) 5) To exit programming switch off the ignition key (unit will automatically exit programming after four keys) NOTE :- 1) Programing procedure can only entered with the system disarmed. 2) If all keys have been lost the system will need to be replaced

Well, you may not need to take it to a dealer if you have the EKA code.
Firstly, pop a new battery in the fob. Get the vehicles battery charged up or changed.
Now we can enter the EKA.
Close all the doors.
Turn the key in the driver door lock to the unlock position and hold there for at least 5 seconds until the alarm sounds once. Then return to centre - always ensure you return to centre and do not delay more than 10 seconds between turns, or hold in the position for more than 5 seconds or you will reset to the start. Turn to full extent of travel.
1st Digit turn to unlock the number of times specified.
2nd Digit turn to lock the number of times specified.
3rd Digit turn to unlock the number of times specified.
4th Digit turn to lock the number of times specified.
Finally turn to unlock once more. If it is correct a double bleep will sound (single bleep is incorrect code)
You now have a 5 minute delay - don't open any doors. The anti-theft indicator will continue flashing once every 2 seconds for the five minute period. When this goes out, open the door and start within 30secs.
After 3 failed attempts, the security system invokes a delay period of 10 mins during which the system will not accept any further attempts to enter a code.

If the EKA code contains a 0, then you have a problem that should never have got to you - the dealer should have spotted the duff EKA and changed it! I have no idea how you'd get it back from such a state, other than programming a new BCU to the engine ECU, and then new keyfobs to that BCU. This is assuming the 0 isn't just a mis-print or an 8 ? Best to get the dealer on this.
(In order to access security you have to insert the key and turn to position I and I don't think the system would let you in until it was disarmed)
