Dr Dave I have this code for my son in laws car and I think we need to use it. BUT we don't know how !!! Help please if you can. Thanks. :dunno:
How to input the EMERGENCY KEY ACCESS CODE
1) Using the key, turn the drivers door lock (clockwise) to the LOCK position and hold it there for at least 5 seconds. Then return the key to the centre position. It is now possible to use the key to enter the numerical value of the four digits of the EKAC as follows
2) Enter 1st digit
If the 1st digit is 4 turn the key to the UNLOCK position 4 times. Ensure the key is fully returned to the centre position after each turn of the key.
3) Enter the 2nd digit
If the 2nd digit is 3 turn the key to the LOCK position 3 times. Ensure the key is fully returned to the centre position after each turn of the key.
4) Enter 3rd digit
If the 3rd digit is 2 turn the key to the UNLOCK position twice. Ensure the key is fully returned to the centre position after each turn of the key.
5) Enter 4th digit
If the 4th digit is 1 turn the key to the LOCK position once. Ensure the key is fully returned to the centre position afterwards.
6) Finally, turn the key to the UNLOCK position one more time, this will re-mobilise the engine.
If the code has been entered successfully, the anti-theft indicator light will stop flashing and the engine can be started.
IF AN INCORRECT CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED:
If the code has been entered incorrectly, a warning bleep will sound when the key is turned to the UNLOCK position. In this case:
- Open and close the door (this will cancel the error)
- Enter the code again.
After three failed entry attempts the security system invokes a delay period of ten minutes during which the system will not accept any further attempts to enter a code.
Once deactivated, the engine immobiliser will remain inactive until the handset is next used to lock the car.
