The immobilizer systems on these vehicles can only be accessed and programmed by a dealer or a shop with a T4 or Autologic scantool system. Typically, replacing batteries in a fob should not present any new issues. Try manually locking the vehicle with the key. One turn to the right with the key in the driver door should lock the whole vehicle, activate the alarm which is indicated by one horn beep, a flash of the parking lights & a rapid flashing of the red light on the dash. After less than a minute, the red light should go to a slower flash and the vehicle is now armed. By placing the key back in the drivers door, one turn to the left should de-activate the alarm and a second turn should un-lock the rest of the vehicle and it should start. If this does not work then the key may not be communicating with the vehicle and may need to be re-programmed. Make sure the batteries in the fob are correct, installed correctly and of good quality. If you do need to have the key re-programmed, make sure you have all the keys so that they can all be done at the same time. Most local shops do not have the capability to access the immobilization systems on these vehicles.

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.

Battery went flat now with a different battery check engine light is on can it be reset using the key switch


Probably not. Most need suitable diagnostic equipment to clear codes and those older models that do not simply disconnecting the battery for a few hours will generally do the trick. Sometimes it is possible to access codes and clear them by triggering self diagnosis by shorting selected pins of the obd socket.

A few older models fitted with an immobiliser can have the immobiliser code inputted by using a combination of key switch, brake or throttle pedal or the driver's door lock depending on manufacturer.

Mazda 6 immobiliser light flashing and car will not turn over


Immobilisers may intercept one of three circuits; typically the low-voltage ignition circuit and the fuel pump circuit. Some may also intercept the low-current starter motor circuit from the key switch to the relay. The Immobilisers can be set to intercept these circuits IF you use a key that has been copied or someone tried to start the car with the key for another car. Once activated, most of the time they are on a timer, meaning they will reset in 10 to 20 minutes. You can try and reset yours by disconnecting the battery, remove both cables and touch the two cables together for ten minutes. Now if you have a radio that needs codes to reset it be sure you have the codes before disconnecting the battery. Some Immobilisers use a magnetic switch to turn off the car. buy disconnecting the battery and touching the cables together you will kill the magnetic field and reset it. Hope this helps fixya up.

The immoboliser light flashes when the key is turned?


this is how the immobiliser system works........you have a remote,it has 2 codes,one is fixed,one is random,the random code changes every time you lock the car,and this is the code the car reccognises to open/start the car.the fixed code is for simple key reccognition.the key has a magnet inbuilt that has a fixed code that matches the remotes fixed code.if you use a wrong key,the car will start,then die.the flashing light on the dash is a warning that the key code is weak and COULD cause a malfunction.use your spare keys and if the light still flashes you may need to have the keys recoded.(NO. YOU CANT DO THEM YOURSELF as the VW computer diagnostic computer has to match then reccognise the key to the car.) thats why when reseting the keys/car after a battery is changed you must go through the set/reset as shown in the handbook(that nobody seems to own).

Cant start dont take ekc what now


Have you followed the instructions with regards the EKA code?
You have to enter the code, then you should hear a noise, two chirps is correct code, one is incorrect. You then have to wait 5 minutes till the dash light stops flashing. You then have a 30 second window to open the door and start the vehicle before the engine is immobilised. Do not open the car during the 5 minute window. It's detailed in the manual btw.

Landrover not starting


Hi,
This is something that will only get worse I'm afraid.
You really need another key made to the original spec. By this - I mean a key cut to code - not just copied, that includes the immobiliser unit.
You can get one from a Land Rover dealership, but will be cheaper from a good locksmiths that cut immobiliser keys to code + program the immobiliser chip.

Central locking not working new battery in remote no help my car is now super locked and I can not open the lock for any door except the drivers side and then only with the key... this has become a one...


There are 2 possibilities. First, if you have the EKA code, this is the emergency key access code, a 4 digit number. You must lock down the car including windows and then with the key enter the code using the door lock on the drivers side. Note that if you miss with the code 3 times, then you will have to wait about half an hour to let the system reset, before trying again. Check your vehicle service books to find the code, maybe on a seperatre card. The only other option is to recdover the car to an authorised dealer that can plug in the tester to reset the system.
Hope this helps
