    Exclamation Help!

    HELP!
    Can ANYONE please help!

    The car in question is a 2002 3.2 v6 Elite. Yesterday the "Padlock" symbol appeared on the dash and the car wouldnt start, eventually after turning the ignition on and off the car started and drove fine, did the same thing this morning but when I tried to start it this afternoon no amount of turning the key on and off will clear the "padlock" and the car refuses to start, I replaced the battery in the fob and the key will now not operate the doors....incidently I did this yesterday but as soon as the engine started it seemed to "re-program" the fob as well, I've disconected the battery for a few minutes but again with no joy! I've sprayed WD40 over every relay/fuse/wire I can see and wiggled the gear (auto) lever like a madman all to no avail.....
    I've now been recovered and am sat at home wondering what to do with the damn thing now....any advice would be gratefully recieved...

    Regards

    Paul

    Update: Left the battery off for a good couple of hours to see if that would reset the system, just re-connected it to the sound of the alarm going off and still the "padlock" symbol on the dash remains!!!

    Sounds like it needs to be plugged in at the dealers into Tech-2.

    I think it refers to an immobiliser problem!

    Just checked the handbook:

    The handbook says try starting it with a spare key and consult a workshop.

    It also says about taking the car pass with you to the VX Dealer.

    HTH and hope you're sorted quickly.
