Hi .

If the key fob is the problem ?? then all you have to do is lock the doors with the key then unlock ,sit in the car insert the key to "ON" then turn to start , The immo warning light should go out when the key is in the "ON" position, if still flashing then try your second spare key, if this does not work then you will need to call out the local locksmith to use his scan tool to check and see what has malfunctioned.

Here is a location site so you can find your local locksmith .

Hi, it is not the battery that is the problem, the car still unlocks etc. I think it is something to do with the immobilizer, the car doesn't recognize the key. I think the coding on the key has been wiped! and i only have one key. How do i find out if this is the case and how do i get it re-coded.

Hi Donna .

Get in touch with one of the two links and get them to come out and check the
immo system.
