Try resetting the computer with three separate ignition turns, yet dont actually engage the starter motor. just click the ignition to where it lights up your dash gauges, then click back to the off possition. try this three times

Earth a wire on my st200 mondeo loom melted on egr pipe fixed it now fault finder says ecu not connected as immobiliser will not switch off


You could try doing an electronics reset by disconnecting the battery (See online for info on doing this) but if a wire has shorted for the ECU , it may have damaged it. That is usually an expensive failure. try the rest first. Make sure you have the radio access code before you disconnect the battery as you will need it to restart the radio.

use a scanner to reset the immobiliser in the CPU program. use the original key when you have done that. The immobiliser probably cut in from the dead battery( if you removed it or disconnected the earth wire then that will do the trick of operation the immobiliser)

How can you bypass an antitheft system on a 2002 tdi jetta?


If it is not a new key fob, it sounds to me like the immobilizer is activated. So, all the lights on the dash are working now? Is there a flashing key on the dash lights? One of the resets that works is put the key fob in, and turn ignition on without starting it, and leave it 15 minutes. And try again.

We change out battery in 2005 Xtype jag after we install battery and car was running as we was program the radio all the light on dash starting blinking and the car died


Sounds like an issue with the car's immobiliser. In order to prevent theft by disconnecting the alarm system when the power is cut the immobiliser is programmed to interrupt the car restart when power resumed. You will need to reset the alarm code.

Engine will not start because immobiliser is active ,even when turned off,when key insered tthe hazerds flash and alrm sounds


disconnect the battery, behind the glove box is a white 4 pin socket, disconnect this, then turn key in ignition to the point just before ignition, reconnect the battery, then turn ignition on, engine should fire, the only problem is you will have to repeat each time you start, best way is to put an immobiliser switch in between the gegative battery terminal and set it on or under the dash, hope this helps

The car will not start as it seems immobiliser is a problem


could be your crank sensor has failed.

usually it is behind or near the main crank pulley, not sure on your car's exact location.

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes to reset the ecu and see if it restarts.

Wont start


Hi
Had a similar problem with my x type 2.5 petrol, only had the car 1 day went to start it nothing happend all the lights came up on the dash but the engine wouldn't start and the immobiliser light stayed on. Spoke to Jaguar they had no idea and I couldn't get it to them. After disconnecting the battery trying to reset the immobiliser phoned and auto locksmith they came out and discovered the end of the key with the blade had lost it's coding and the immobiliser was not disarming, they reprogrammed the key and the car started no problem. As far as i know there is no way past the immobiliser. Hope this helps.
