Re: hello everyone please can you HELPPPPPPP
If this has happened just after you've changed the battery I'd bet on the relays just in front of the battery - or the wiring to them - having been disturbed...they're not known as the "black box of bo****ks" for nothing.....
But if its not an issue with them, you can use a full key / ignotion barrel / code box / ECU set off another 145/146 - just make sure its from the same engine size and (obviously) from the same engine type - alloy top or plastic top - 'cos the two ECU types are completely different! I'm not sure if I've got any 1.8 sets at present, but I may have......
Feel free to give me a call (07976 384980) if you need to talk it through....
Edit: Bodger types faster then me! ;-)
