Doors lock/unlock, but immobiliser does not let engine start
I have read through the Sticky posting on immobilisers and tried the CLIO II RF resync procedure with no luck. I was hoping someone could provide some tips here and save A$600 from going to smoke.
Problem: The remote controls lock and unlock the doors (just fine!), but will not start the engine. With the first one the motor attempts to turn, but does not start. With the second one, the starter motor does not even engage.
The battery was going dead in the remote. So, I took the battery out to get a replacement. I did not rush, because I had the spare remote (which WAS working). I got the battery a week later.
AFTER I put the first remote (with the new battery in) and tried to start it, nothing happened !!! When I put the second key in, it just kept spinning the motor, but not letting it start.
WHEN trying the CLIO 2 resync, no matter how long I hold down the central locking button in the center console the doors will not lock AND unlock (it just either locks or unlocks).
ANY or all TIPS on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.
