Won't start

Hi

If your immobiliser light is on on the dash board you will require the EkA code which will over rided the immobiliser so you would then be able to start your vehicle.

He said it cranks so it is not the immobiliser coming on.
Sounds like either the central locking playing games or the SCU to me.

Plus, EKA entry is decidedly "dodgy" on facelift cars.

to the OP. Will it keep cranking or just turn over once and stop once the central locking kicks in?
When you say the hazards "come on", do you mean they stay on or just give the "car locked" flash sequence?
