Our problem was very simpy solved in the end. With all doors shut we were told to lock and unlock the car with the remote about 7 times. This re-set the immobiliser and the car started!

My car seems to have same problem. It's in the shop right now, as a matter of fact. First, they recommended the fuel pump be changed. Since that cost is so high, I asked that they replace the antenna ring in the ignition as a possible and cheaper hope of fixing it. Another mechanic from Volvo dealership in nearby county claimed this fixes the problem 98% of the time whenever he has these years in with these same problems. I've asked them to do so and am waiting to hear the results. I'll let you know then.

    Well, they called back and said no that didn't help. So, I suppose it's the fuel filter. Can't think of anything else to do... I will reply then with how the fix goes... Thought it might have also been the fuel pressure sensor as this can cause similar problems, (there is a recall out for the 03, but they said it didn't apply to my vin). So $882.00 later- I let you know...

    Meant to say fuel pump... sorry. That's what is to be replaced next...

    hello Butterfly. Did you get your Volvo fixed? My V40 has the no start problem, changed the antenna ring and still not happening.

First: alarm went off on its own.(mazda 6 2003). Now when locking and unlocking car sometimes indicators flash and sometimes not. Now red immobaliser light is flashing on dash when driving, then stops...


there is often a small back up battery in the immobiliser unit itself, if you can locate this unit and replace the battery with the ignition on / engine running, then it should not need recoding and work fine after that. The other thing that could be wrong is the key battery (if the fob has one) or the transponder chip in the key head. If the key signal is low the immobiliser lamp will light during driving, but this does not explain the alarm going off. That is more likely either a poor vehicle battery, alarm / immobiliser back up battery, or another electrical fault such as water leakage into a tail-light or even the alarm unit itself when it rains. A lot of alarms are voltage sensing and when the vehicle is parked they will alarm if the battery voltage changes for any reason, though not during driving so the battery in the immob is my first choice to look at.

Imobiliser problem


If im not mistaken,your car should have an alarm reset/override.Below the steering column,on the dash should be a slot where you put your remote transmitter to deactivate the alarm.If that works,you then need to have your remote checked and coded by a vw dealer.Good luck.

Alarm/immobiliser on my korando wont start


Hi i had problems starting mine( just bought it) i was stuck in a carpark for 20mins trying to start it!
Try pressing the lower button (lock/unlock) on your key fob then start her up but make sure your foot is right down on the clutch-or she won;t go! Hope this helps?! i had no manual with mine so if you got any usefull info would appreciate it- iv;e also got a gas tank in the boot- is that standard?have you got one?

Immobiliser wont go off , wont unlock the doors.


There is a way to override the code, however you need the code number. The only other way is to sit in car with door shut, play with the central locking button on dash, locking and unlocking. While doing this occassionally turn the ignition on and off. If you do it long enough, you may find the immobiliser light goes out, if it does, quickly start the car.
