Immobiliser Active
« on: November 02, 2015, 09:58:52 PM »
HI Folks, problem with the 2008 1.8 TDI Galaxy. Working fine all day, jumped into it, won't start, just churning away without catching. It did this before about 5 years ago and the nice Ford man gave me a procedure to follow; fasten seat belts, turn ignition to I to II x four times, press button. But its still not working. Help? I've tried changed batteries in fob.
