    Exclamation Immobiliser/Battery related - Quick fix needed! :S

    Im stupidly late for work today.

    Im not sure if its my battery or imobiliser.

    Car started fine in the morning, heaters all on to clear it. Got out and deiced the car. I forgot my gloves, left the lights on and everything, just turned engine off for the keys to house.

    Got glves and went back to the car and tried starting it, alarm came on straight away and it didnt start.

    Now im having problems getting the central locking to work at all, I tried removing the negative terminal on the battery to reset somthing and it just sets the alarm off again so I replace the terminal and it stops.

    Im gonna just go check the voltage across the battery terminals but I really dont see how in the space of 30seconds it could drain the battery enough to make it set the alarm off and not start.


    any ideas, Please?!

    Please try switching all lecriks off,

    lock and delock with your fob, after charging your battery up a little,

    Syptoms;

    You have tried and succeeded, in draining your battery,
    however it still maybe good, on a recharge
