Mark 1 pajero

Hi again - i have taken off the steering column casing as i couldnt see any black box. there is a sensor inside which picks up the signal from the key fob when pressed normally to disable immobilser. this sensor leads to a plastic housing (two black in & red, white and black out). i have also locted another red wire which has a plastic join with a fuse on it. i have taken this out and tried it but it wont turn over - any ideas
cheers lee

Hi lee,

what you are looking for is a normally close relay...it is about an inch by inch square and it would cut off the wire from your ingintion switch to the starter. that is the imobiliser relay.

try to trace the wire from your ignition switch going to the starter. maybe you can see where they cut the wire.

tnx,

drcool

2001 escort. No power to fuel pump. fuel pump good. Fuses good. Sensors good. Why no power to pump


Ford uses an inertia switch to disable the fuel pump in the event of an accident. Not sure of your year/model, but you will find a black box about 1 inch by 2 inches attached to the firewall inside the car in the area the steering column goes through. If it is tripped, a red or yellow button will have popped up. Push it back in and your car may start.

    Hi.. i can't unlock my Land rover steering locked (Tdi300 pick up) & the key can't turn on too.. please help me to solve this problem, tq..


    Be very careful to rock the steering left and right harshly as it would ultimately destroy the pin inside the steering column. Once you've tried that, and it ain't bugging, get ready for stripping steering to the column. Try squirting some oil inside colomn in your key entrance.

    Need keyless entry code for ford five hundred i looked under the dash for small black box did not fine it,


    Under the steering column, there is a black fuse box you will need to undo the 3 screws that hold the fuse box up. It is easier if you undo the bottom dash trim under the steering column. Once you have undone the screws on the fuse box (leave the wires attached) pull the fuse box down and on the top side there is a sticker with your factory keycode. You will need a flashlight and possible a mirror, I was able to pull mine down far enough to get my head up inside the steering column to read the numbers. Remember if using a mirror the numbers are backwards to the way you are reading them. Good luck Better than paying the dealership $80.00

    My 2000 Pontiac Grand AM, Is hard to steer after it has sat for a while and when you make a sharp turn. It is like it breaks loose and steers just fine after that


    Hi,
    it would seem to be that the power assist steering is not given assistance untill the relative steering wheel action is quite advanced. The valve actuators in the rack / box will have to be checked, if the lower column is checked and found to be functioning correctly.

    Simple check, put a chalk mark on the top and bottom of the steering column adjacent to the safety joint. Have an assistant turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock and opserve the chalk marks. if they move out of alignment with each other, the upper and lower steering column is not functioning correctly.

    When performing this task, observe all applicable safety precautions to avoid injury.

    If the marks remain in alignment, the problem is within the rack / box, and appropriate action will have to be taken.

    Good luck.

    I have a h reg pajero import and th eimmobiliser is stuck on. how to i get it off or disconntect it completely


    you have to find the immobiliser relay and remove it .

    look underneath the steering column, it is a black box which you would recognise as an add on, meaning it is not an original part of the pick up. it could just be tied anywhere under there or screw anywhere under neath. trace the wires that comes and goes there. there should be a red wire that comes with a fuse. that is the power supply. you can remove the fuse and hope it would do the trick.

    if not, then another small box connected to it could be the relay. that you can remove the power going to the relay so that it won't function anymore and you can start your pick up.

    tnx 4 using fixya,
