Question about 2000 Ford Focus

Seat Alhamba will not start.

I have a 1997 seat alhambra petrol. There is no spark and I am told the key requires re-programming to dissarm the immobilizer. How can I do this?

I don't know if re-programming is the answer but any Seat/VW main dealer can do this for you. Trouble is they will change you for a few minutes work!! However, if your key is the sort that i have for my Alhambra (chunky one) then if you follow these instructions then it should work.

How to reprogram the C/L remote control key fob

1. Take the valet key, put it into the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position, just prior to starting the car.

2. Roll down the driver's side window (not required, but a good idea in case there's a problem).

3. Exit the car and close the door.

4. With a second key, physically lock the doors (don't use a remote).

5. Take the first remote to be programmed, press one of the buttons and the lights will flash once. Wait 10 seconds and press the unlock button. The doors should unlock. That first transmitter is now programmed.

6. Lock the door again (physically) with the key, (not the remote).

7. Press one of the buttons twice, the lights will flash twice. Wait 10 seconds and press the unlock button. The doors should unlock. The second transmitter is now programmed.

For a third transmitter press the button 3 times and for a fourth press 4 times.

"Make sure that to test the newly program remotes, the original key is removed from the ignition. Someone might be a bit frustrated trying to test it with it still in 'program' mode."


Hope it works for you!

All the best, RobboArsenal

Spark plug gap for 1997 mitsubishi trition 2.4 petrol ute


Spark plug gap does not effect the engine timing so it's not that critical. Thirty 5 (.035) should work just fine.
Otherwise consult a service manual fro your model or call a Mitsubishi service centre

Motor will not turn over


First check whether you have fuel. Second check whether fuel comes to the engine,Third check whether you have spark if is a petrol engine or if is diesel is another matter-does the solenoid on the diesel fuel pump work to release fuel goes through,four check whether your car is fitted with immobilizer or the ignition key dropped and lost the immobilizer chip,or the ignition switch does not send signal to spark.

Cars computer showing immobilizer problem.car will turn over but wont start. have replaced the ignition immobilizer antenna but problem still current


Dear Sir
It could be cause of 4 things 1 Key faulty 2 Engine Control Module 3 Ignition Immobilizer 4 Wiring.
But when you replacing immobilizer it should be program or paired with Engine Control Module and Key, Then only it will work, for programing you will require scanner or diagnostic tool for particular model, better to visit authorize workshop. if any doubts please feel free and ask me thanks.

You might be having a VTSS preventing the engine to start. Dissarm the VTSS by inserting the key into either front door or liftback.
