Immobilizer failue, help needed please!!!
I have a serious issue with my 147 i'm hoping someone can help me with..
I have had my 147 laid up for the past 12 months, last week I popped on a new battery, checked fluids and tried to start it, it fired first time no problem and sounds fine, I drove it a little and parked it up again.
Come to start today and it wont, when I turn on the ignition I get 'immobilizer failure''code''asr failure messages on the dash, the engine symbol on the dash flashes very fast in rhythm to a clicking noise coming from the throttle body, it seems to be the butterfly valve that is clicking, sometimes the immobilizer relay clicks as well... engine turns but doesn't start.
I have disconnected and reconnected all connections to the throttle body, popped out and changed the relays but with no joy, tried a different battery that reads 12.7 volts, tried shorting battery leads and leaving ignition on for around 10 mins, nothing has worked... could the ecu have blown, what else could it be..
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Thanks for looking
