Hi All
My MGTF is in the garage at the moment, being repaired. However, every time they try to turn the car over, it turns over twice, and the immobiliser light kicks in on the dashboard and shuts it down. Once the keypad button is pressed it can then be restarted, but repeats the same process. I have the original type keys with the black fob.I am not sure what the options are for me. Can this be bypassed/disabled, if so does anyone know what the steps required are, so I can then inform my mechanic/technician, or if anyone knows anyone in the Milton Keynes area that can do this. Are there any other options available?

Many Thanks in advance

It sounds like the fob hasn't been re synchronised with with car (presumably the cars battery has been disconnected at some point), if this is the case I would start off by following the key fob battery change instructions in the cars owner manual.

I inherited the car from my fathers estate after he died.It didn't come with an owners manual. Do you know where I might find a link to an online copy please. Thank you for that advice. Once I get instructions, I'll pass them to the garage to attempt. Fingers crossed

To resync, unlock the car with the key but don't open the door and then press the lock button repeatedly until the doors lock (if central locking is fitted). If that doesn't work remove the battery from the fob and well away from the car press the buttons a few times before refitting a the battery (get a new one if it is a few years old) and retry.
