Re: Engine immobilizer fault!!

I've been off a searching: Wet carpets, disconnecting the battery without letting the BSI go to sleep (I know you've not done this), wiring issues, the BSI has lost communication with the engine ecu, you need to take it to Pug, your key needs reprogramming and.... I pulled off the receiver around th...

Re: Vibration Under Braking

I changed disc, pads bearing hub, braking caliper all original I'm not entirely sure which parts you have changed there and which you're saying are original. The usual suspects are brake disk, hub, tyre, wheel, suspension components. Ooh, brake pads too apparently. Although of these I don't think w...

Re: Engine immobilizer fault!!

It's rather obvious https://www.406oc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17391 You should be able to tell just looking at the stalks with this :wink: There is a lot of difference in the wiring, fuse layouts, wiring, modules... I *think* the semi still has a separate module for the immobiliser (like the D8) ...

Re: Engine immobilizer fault!!

It's an orange not a tangerine, my mistake. :P :P I don't live in the UK 8) Looks like up until March 2002 they were on a 51 plate, 02 from March to September and 52 from September 2002 onwards. I'm pretty sure your ma's car is semi-mux then. The receiver rings do break yes, it's not common but we'...

Re: Engine immobilizer fault!!

Şorry I made you lift the carpet, it could have been nasty (think connectors falling apart and wires corroded so far back there are no numbers on them) and seems quite common. Hmm, now I'm clutching at straws :( 52 plate I believe makes it a 2002, so it could be "semi-mux" or "full-mux", the change ...

Hmm, wait until you see it, how much of a job it'll be depends how bad it is. If it is that of course.

Re: Engine immobilizer fault!!

I guess the battery disconnect/reconnect is covered by the BSI reset. Hmm, crackling in the car, could be wet/corroded footwell connectors (under the driver's side carpet).

Re: rear suspension bushes mot advisory

That sounds pretty good to me, these are getting pretty old now sadly. Maybe this diagram would help, I've posted it before but I'll be jiggered if I can find it. Sorry it's in French but it seems to be a pretty good diagram. I'm never sure of the names but I think you're talking about 6 (longitudin...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Well, I can see his viewpoint, it's a bit of a gamble and the first ebay replacement I got for my first yoyo was crap and soon fell apart. Maybe he'll find something here. You're right about it being open, now it'll fill with pocket fluff and maybe some moisture and I was thinking to tell him this, ...

Re: Most ever users on-line

I think there's been more in the past and that number's just since the last board change, and I've no idea how many of them are just bots. But yes, this board is far from dead but the reason we don't see more posts is because most of the answers are here already.

So, your airbag issue..?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

It's ok now, strangely :? I've spoken to the G, he says he doesn't care about the lion but he's a bit iffy on spending over 20 quids on something that might turn out to be flimsy junk. He says thank you but leave it for now, maybe he can find something here. Btw he has tried Pug, with predictable re...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Board's running rather slow here (might be this end of course). Thankyou ever so much for looking! I am sorry I turned out to have wasted your time. The ebay links are a good find tho, I've no idea why they didn't come up for me, I just put 406 remote/case in there so I thought I'd bring up everythi...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Yep, a lot of the supposed 406 fobs I saw on ebay have the screw, now I'm thinking that they aren't even 406. There should actually have been a spare one with the car, when I bought it the plip was dead and Pug supplied me with a new one (I was young and innocent in those days) but I guess Goran did...

Re: 2.0HDI Revs out of control and high idle

Might be the clutch switch borked? Hmm, that'll give a high idle at rest but not sure about at speed.
