Hi folks my first post here so please be gentle with me
I bought a 2000 (W) Laguna last week from a used cars sales place. Superb condition low mileage etc. Next day I switched off the ignition to read a map and when I tried to restart the immobliser light just flashed. then after a few spins it started. Jump to Sunday, 12 30am West End of London same thing, flashing immobiliser light
This time I had to try fror 1/2 hour before it started.
Any way I contacted the previous owner who said this had been going on a long time and had cost a lot of money. The local dealer had apparently changed the decoder amongst other things.
Today I took the car to a Renault dealer (Delta Maidenhead) who ran diagnostics, but surprise surprise nothing found. The guy said he changed the "CO2 and crankshaft filter" as its a common fault which causes it to non start. £200.
My questions are Would this sensor cause the immobiliser to not turn off? (I dont think so) The man in the garage had no answer when asked.
I have been through just about every post in here aboout Laguna immobilisers and as far as I can make out The model Laguna cannot have its Immobiliser over ridden. Is this the case?
I also had the usual run around about not being able to get codes from Renault. Thats now a complaint with Renaukt UK
I hope one of you experts can answer my questions.
Thanks in advance
