My 1995 416i had a flat battery, I recharged the battery and went to start it again, (the key fob is broken so I normally use my manufacturers 4 digit code and turn the key left/right accordingly if the battery goes flat) only some thieving piece of human slime had punched the drivers lock in so I couldnt fit the key in it.

I took apart the door and took apart the key barrel which has a tiny sensor on it which enables and disables the central locking but this sensor is not responding when I press it.

Is all hopes of getting my car started totally buggered? How can I totally remove the immobilser, is this difficult and will it have to be done by rover specialists? Can i do the same code on the pasasengers side or does it have to be the drivers side?

Thanks a lot for any repsonses.

The immobiliser is built imto the vehicles electronics and can not be overridden.Your best bet is to get a key barrel from a scrapper and fit it to your door.Obviously get the key for it as well and just fit it all back together.I had the same problem on my 414,the lock was screwdrivered.Could not get the key in.Anyway got the key barrel,fitted it and everything is ok.Cost a tenner with the key.Hope this helps.

cheers mate, will try that. My only concern is that the little sensor which controls the central locking that is attached to the bottom of the key does not seem to work when i press it, i hope i have not somehow disconnected it.

yeah it clips onto the lock thats not so much of an issue, its easy too clip back on but what worries me is that the actual sensor is not working when u press it.

i was born with hands as delicate as the incredible hulk and when i took the door off i fear i must have pulled the lock too hard and disconnected the actual wire somewhere. Gonna have another look tonight and try to trace the wire back to see were it goes
