    Default Immob Problem. 2003 1.8LS

    Been having probs getting the car started, Little car with a padlock shows up on dash and code reader indicating immob recieving wrong code.

    First thought myself was key battery but been through 3 now and problems still occuring at what seems random... locking and unlocking the car a few times seems to work but i need a more permanant fix.

    Ive been advised to get a new key but thats £250 from the VX dealer's.

    Any Idea's or am i just gonna need start saving those pennies?

    £250 is way too much for a new key (unless it has a gold blade!). I've been quoted between £80 - £100 for a new flip key, thats not including the price of the car pass, £20. The key I have now is the old type and I had to have a new chip and reprogramming done a while back.

    Now that don't sound too bad... Im guessing their trying con me with a ECU swap or something then...

    Cheers for that guys, Have to pop down dealers sometime this week and have some words.

    Im guessing thats where you guys got quoted cause they also said only VX can do it.... But im sceptical now?

    Ok got this sorted now... gonna give it a few weeks see if problem occur's again.

    But you guys were spot on... £24 for ECU code, £55 for the key blank and another £24 to have it coded...

    only problem I had was they told me drop the car off during break so had to wait an hour... not much a issue but still.
