Hello again Michael -

Thank you for your reply and info - My sincere apologies, I was not on Sun / Mon.. Im sorry abut that .

Ok - that sounds ok with the immobiliser.. basically, when you switch on, the immob LED should light continually for about 3 secs - then go out and stay out when you start the engine..

Now - assuming thats right.. the immob circuit must be ok... so when you say, " when I go to start I get nothing..."... what exactly is nothing.... please tell me exactly all that happens / doesn't happen...

Also , what circuit tests have you carried out?

I will be on later today -

Rgds, MIKE.................................
