Hi have a 2007 1.4 diesel fiesta the car starts intermittent with the immobiliser light flashing. Will start but takes 30 mins

The recovery man seems to think the immobiliser in the barrel is not working properly.
Hello I'd agree that this sounds like a security system issue as the 1st thing to try is a new battery in the key fob and if that doesn't help then try the spare key if you have 1 and if that doesn't help then you will need to get the car to a dealer to have a new key coded to the car sorry its not a more DIY answer but with security systems that are designed to keep you out you really do need the right kit to reset everything
