Man I love this forum!!!!

I've just posted back to a member that has an immobiliser problem, just a memory from a previous car I had, a P-reg Megane.

In checking out the immo bypass code info, just to refresh my memory on the method, I found that the ECU light also acts as the immo light on early Laguna's.

Then I had an Epiphany!!!! I opened it with the key this morning, as the KEY BLIP DIDN'T WORK (I think the battery might be going).

Changed the battery in the key, and guess what, it roared into life!! Looking back at the first time it wouldn't start this week, I did the same thing. When I went out the day after to try it again before cleaning the TDC , it started fine.

So the lessons learned this week....I now know how to change the TDC sensor, and everything is not always what it seems!!

I'm so glad I joined up...thanks again to all you guys that helped out.
