Immobiliser/key fob problems
Hi, I am a new member and have just bought a second hand 1996 216 Convertible SE and really need some help.
The car was running great, last Friday I parked it in the garage. On Saturday I went to use the car, nothing happened, the battery was totally flat. I took the battery out to get it charged and saw a wire that was connected to the battery and nothing else. It transpired that the wire had been connected to a sound system and when the sound system had been taken out the wire was left connected to the battery. I called an auto mechanic who removed the wire and found a fuse had blown, which was replaced, but the car still wouldn.t start. Also the battery had gone totally flat again. I have had it recharged again and the key fob wont work. I have tried the EKA code which also wont work. My only option seems to be to get it towed to a garage to reset the diagnostics, but I am concerned that if it happens again, I will be back to square one or??? will they check the code for me to make sure it is the right one. PPPPPPPPPPPPlease HHHHHHHHHHHelp thanks
Also, I have read that I could obtain an Avon bypass which would get rid of the problem, does anyone know where I can get one from, are they totally reliable and how much do they cost? thanks again
