Immobiliser?

Post by Scott.990 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:39 am

Hi all, purchased my '98 cat a couple of days ago, and I'm pretty stoked in all honesty.
But... When I go to start the car the alarm goes off, engine cranks but doesn't start.
It had a replacement ECU and engine rebuild 2013ish by puma build.
Am I right in thinking the immobiliser/keys are the main culprits? The red LED stays on, doesn't flash intermittently to give me any sort of code.
I've just bought an OBD reader to try and decipher it, but would like a heads up, if possible, before I get round to doing it.
Thanks.

Sounds like alarm not deactivated by either remote or door switch to me

Reckon it'd be worth getting a new key and transponder and programming it?
Also is there a sequence for erasing the keys that are already programmed?
