    Have you tried the spare key to see if the same problem occurs?

    Put key in ignition and turn it all the way so dash lights are on without starting the car,press one of the buttons on the key fob if the door button pops up and down the key has been reset.
    If it still takes 30 times to start your looking at a new CIMM

    Not sure mate thought all the key codes for immobilizer was stored in the CIMM,all tho the transponder on the key might be naffed so only way to know would be to buy a new key

    That procedure only resync's the remote central locking if the fob no longer operates it. It won't resync the immobiliser.

    Sounds like the cim i had the same problem worse first thing in the morning wouldnt see any of my three keys started after about 20 attempts but got worse.

    Stealers reprogramed the keys, said one was faulty and sold me a replacement key.

    Next day same problem they said it was the cim this time and replaced it .7 of a hour job took them 4 days!!!!!!

    This did fix it i deducted the cost of the replacement key and first programing charge off the cim replacement invoice . Total cost about £300.00
