Exclamation Immobilizer Failure!! Heads Up

Just a heads up for anybody with a 147/156

The other night the 147 would not start and on the info display it had immobilizer failure. Managed to get the car started and home using the emergency engine code.

Thinking that the Immobilizer was buggered abd worried that it was going to cost £££ I postrd the problem on one of the other sites.

Got a reply in a couple of minutes the solution :-

Take the covers off from arround the ignition barrel and you will see wires going in for the receiver (aerial) for the transponder from the key give them a wiggle and clean the connector and the car started ok.
