    Hi more info........
    I tried to start my car with my spare set of keys..not the normal ones that I use! Didn't think ot would make a difference!

    The car wouldn't start & the eletronic immoblizer icon showed on dashboard.
    I can't use my normal keys to start now & the car is stuck outside my door!
    Thanks for your prompt answer but I don't know how to de-activate immobilizer!

    Got the answer....
    ring the RAC! :rolleyes:

    The RAC man put the original key in the ignition turned it to start.. within a few minutes the immoblizer reset itself.. yipee

    So my car is now off to the scrap yard! Trading it in for a new VW golf..via scrappage scheme!

    Cheers all
    :LOL:
