    Default 456 Dead Immobilizer / Fob

    Hi there y’all, hope someone can help me with this :

    I left my 456 untouched for several months and today it wouldn’t start. The immobiliser seems to be the problem. When I press the button the fob doesn’t lock / unlock the veichle, nor it disarms the immobiliser (the red light keeps flashing). Even worse, as I turned the ignition key, the back of the driver’s seat came all the way up (making now nearly impossible to even sit in front of the wheel).o_O

    The battery is fully charged, I am able to power lights, windows, radio etc. I tried changing the fob battery but had no joy.

    I don’t know what to think, my only guess is that the fob got damaged somehow (I recently moved to a new house and the piece of furniture containing the keys/remote fell to the ground several times (ouch!). Though I see no cracks on the fob maybe some of the circuits got disconnected (?).

    Should I check the “S” relay? Only have one fob, no PIN and kinda starting to freak

    Thanks

    just changing the battery in the fob won’t cure anything as, if it’s a Clifford fitted, then the code changes every time the lock sequence is activated. You will need to get a Clifford authorised agent to do a reset via the software port. When they do this you can then also put in a new pin. There are normally two buttons fitted discreetly somwwhere to enter the pin as a defined number on pulses. If it’s not a Clifford then sorry, I can’t advise.
