I've somehow triggered the engine immobiliser on a 99 Xsara and I
don't know how to get it going again.
The background is that the car belonged to my father who died
recently. I've used it a couple of times without any problems but,
on the most recent occasion, the engine wouldn't start and I
noticed an illuminated yellow light with a key symbol on the
dashboard. I assume this tells me that the engine is immobilised.
Presumably I did something wrong but how do I fix it? I have three
keys for the car, two plain and one with a stud which has worn
away. I also have a small card which has an alphanumeric code on
it which may well be relevant but I don't know how. Unfortunately,
the manual is in his home (I assume) and I won't be able to get
there for a couple of days.
I got locked in the car as well but the doors apparently unlocked
themselves before I suffered too much embarassment. I assume this
Can anyone advise me?
