Disarming the engine immobiliser

Switching on the ignition disarms the system if the correct code is recognised.

The indicator illuminates for approximately three seconds and then extinguishes.

If the indicator illuminates constantly for one minute or flashes for approximately one minute and then repeatedly at irregular intervals, the system did not recognise the key code or a system fault is present. Remove the key and try again.

If the engine does not start, a system malfunction has occurred. Have the system checked by an expert immediately.
