    Hi, the immobiliser works fine. Its just the plastic mounting with the led and touch pad that has fallen to bits.

When you say the Immobiliser is broken... Do you mean the touch key?
The 8510 touch key is prone to the internal contacts failing. If you open the case up and reconnect it then you should be able to disarm the immobiliser
You should have two touch keys so try your spare on first.
Be warned... You will need 1 working touch key to program a spare or the system will lock out and will need replacing

Hope this helps!

As for Sutty

Sounds like the system has lost power if the LED is not flashing. Have you made sure cars the battery is not flat?

Hi, I've just aquired an '09 Ford Mondeo 6000CD RDS EON radio/cd on ebay. Can it be fitted to a Mondeo Ghia on a '52 plate?

It would have been better to find this out first before you bought this unit, but yes it should fit as long as your vehicle has a double din facia fitted, if not you can change the dash

Since my battery went dead my stereo is asking 4 a code 2000 w reg fiesta

The safest and easiest way of no risk here is to contact a ford dealer and pay to get the code.Please note that you will get the same code that the car left the factory with and immobiliser and key codes which is better than some internet unlocks...If you have the owner's manual then you would normally have the code in it.

Immobiliser fault

You sound like you are familiar with your hardware. Did you install this system yourself? If so you should know how to re-route back to pre install on the circuit that has been rendered unusable. If not you need someone familiar with that system or an installer with the schematics of it or a new controller, whichever iis available. good luck!
