Customer Question

I have a 2007 Vauxhall Corsa D 1.4sxi and the other day my battery went flat and it was on a hill so i roll started it and it drove fine however the immobiliser warning light was displayed and flashing. Now the car does not start, the ignition comes on radio windows etc all working however does not turn to start and no clicking sound. Think the BCU needs reprogramming, any advise will be much appreciated! Also do I need to change my battery? Thanks in advance

1st thing to do is charge up / replace the battery as if its flat then this will give you security issues

its also worth replacing the key fob battery if this doesn't help

and if neither of this works then the car will need plugging into a dealer level service tool to recode the keys to the body control unit
