    Help ! The key icon light and 'code' keeps intermittently showing on the dash preventing the starting of the engine. This happens alot and the engine wont start, sometimes after about 30 - 60 mins I try the key again and it starts ??? This happens with both keys the master included. Any ideas anyone ? Supposed to be going to Austria in this van soon.:cry:

    Quite often get this if the van has been unlocked/alarm turned off but engine not started within a couple of minutes.
    We always find that if we lock/alarm the van, wait a minute then unlock again it resets no problem.

    sounds like the immobilisers receiver, by the lock, has got a fault or maybe a bad connection. resetting the immobiliser, as above with the key, should work unless the wire comes off completely

    otherwise its a main dealer only fix, because it all needs programming to work
