    Default padlock symbol

    looking for advise. i'm getting a padlock symbol on the dash and the car won't start. i'm guessing its the immoboliser. the thing is its not all the time and most of the time i can lock and up lock the car and its fine, other times i turn the ignition off and back on and it works. then on other occasions i can be sat there for 5 minutes trying to start the car. the stealers want £45 just to hook it up to the diagnostic machine for half an hour. looking for oppinions on wheter to get a new key and transponder or any other thought on possible causes.

    Might be your CIM mate but i would start with the cheapest options first
    Get it hooked up to find out the fault code it might just be a faulty key transponder

    Always hated only having one key. Makes you wonder who has the second one.

    soz.. seems CIM should mean Column Integrated Module

    This pic does not mean its yours as they vary so much depending on age/model/engine etc. Pic is for illustration purposes only. They are well known for developing faults apparently. You can buy secondhnad units from scrappies or the bay, but you will need the part number of your own first before you go for a replacement.. And before you go down that route, go with what you are thinking and get somebody to plug in some diags first..
