Can anyone help with a Master Key issue?
Last night everything was good in the world. Today my V6 didn't want to play. I've read lots on the notice boards and worked through the problem.
My code light doesn't go off when I use my Master key and the car doesn't start. If I use the service key the code light goes off and the car starts fine. (Thank goodness I have all three keys, the code and even the emergency alarm system key)
The master key still arms and disarms the alarm but no longer seems to disarm the immobilizer. The service key which is only designed to work on the ignition does however.
This leads me to believe I have a problem with my Master Key. Now how much is this going to cost and how many hoops do I have to jump through? Also, is it possible that it simply needs a new battery despite still having enough juice to disarm the alarm and unlock the car?
All polite help and advise appreciated.
