    Reset immobiliser for new engine ECU

    Hi everyone, I have a 54-plate petrol Disco 3. I had a problem where all the cluster lamps lit up and the engine wouldn't crank, which I eventually tracked down to the engine ecu being dead. In the Disco 3, it sits in a box (together with the transfer case ecu) behind the battery tray, at the...

It was occasionally not allowing the engine to start and the sounder under the bonnet was broken open and had water in it. Having had problems with dodgy immobilisers in the past it looked like...

    Alarm rant. Grrrrrr.

    My alarm & immobiliser (on my 1996 300tdi) are really getting on my nerves! Does anyone have a wiring diagram at all, so I can butcher the blooming thing and re-wire everything? Every May (every mid May, in fact) the whole system seems desperate to wish me a happy birthday by testing my...

Does anyone know if there is any...
