Thanks for the reply.

I'm getting a new battery tomorrow/tuesday so I'll hope the fob isn't buggered. Otherwise I found a company that can recondition the old fob or programme you a new one for a decent price. Better than hauling it to a garage anyway.

I took off the door card and checked it all out, couldn't find any issues, tried entering the EKA by moving the switch myself to ensure it was going back to center etc. Tried it about a billion times but I think it's just not registering.

So hopefully fob works, if not, recondition fob (cheap), if that doesn't sort it, new fob programmed - 70 total.

All fun and games, seeing as I have the door card off I might install the tweeters I bought.

Immobilised 214 SEi

Very interested to find this forum and would be most grateful if anyone could help with my problem.

The car, a 1994 Rover 214SEi became immobilised a couple of weeks ago in a car park. Despite the best efforts of the recovery chap, the car was towed home and sits in the garage flashing its red LED at me.

The door sensor has not worked for over a year so entry to the car has always been via the key fob. I thought the fob battery had gone so I replaced it, discharging as recommended and pressing the lock button repeatedly to resynchronise the alarm.

There are no codes in the documentation or manual that came with the car. Any idea where I could get that from? Not that I know what to do with it at the moment any way.

I am thinking about removing the drivers door card and checking the switch on the lock barrel for continuity and power supply. Any idea whether this would be 12v or 5v?

Many thanks in advance.

The EKA also disarms the immobiliser UNTIL the next time the car is locked with the fob - the light never comes back until you use the fob. That's true for the bubbles.

I have recently lost my key and fob, but luckily I management to get the EKA code. The only problem is that it won't work correctly. It seems to disarm the sounder on the alarm but the car is still immobilised. Any thoughts?

On my 2003 ZS I need to wait 5 minutes (?) from entering the EKA code until the car will start. I don't think 1997 220SDi had this delay. Check your handbook, yours might be the same.

Unfortunately I do not have the original handbook.
I have a 54 ZR.
Every time I speak to someone or read some advice it always seems different.
I need an accurate procedure for a 54 ZR.
Is the fact that the alarm is dissarmed but the immobiliser isn't, relevant?
If the horn beeps is the procedure or code wrong and therefore if it doesn't is the procedure and code correct?

The 54 plates use a newer alarm type to mine, so I can't guarantee my advice is accurate. Hopefully someone with a facelift model will be along to advise you soon.

Then to unlock for the first digit,

Then lock for the second digit,

Unlock for the third

Lock for the 4th.

Unlock the car.

IE: EKA is 1234

L (hold for 5 s) U, LL, UUU, LLLL, U

see attached scan from handbook.
Can anybody please work out why this is not working for me.

I have tried the above procedure probably 50 times and I cannot get it to work. Although it has disarmed my alarm.

I have a MG ZR on a 54 plate. I believe it has a Pectron alarm system (3 buttons).

Can someone please help.

Matt

No help I know, but on my MK1 using the key in the lock switches the alarm off, it's just the immobiliser to contend with then. Yours might be the same in that using the key to open the door disarms the alarm, but you then need to enter the EKA or use a working, synchronised fob.

You'll need to get the EKA code specifically for your car, each one is different. An XPart dealer or ex MG Rover dealer would be your best bet. Getting the EKA code will cost about 20, and you might need to show them your log book as proof that you own the car.

Open the boot and climb through, so you can pop the bonnet and charge the battery?

Glad the 2nd and 4th digit trick worked for you, good to hear.

Do you know that if you buy a 3-TXB or 17TN fob second hand you can have it programmed to your car? I bought a couple off EBay for about a tenner each.

If you're a forum supporter there's even a very kind member in Brighton who will code the fobs for free to your car.
