  1. Re: The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars in 2030.

    I believe the main problem with hydrogen is the conversion process is hugely inefficient in both directions (creating it and converting it back to electricity) so you really need cheap/free...

    I'll rewrite all this as an article (or two) before I forget any of the details.

    Re: Spare Key

    Anyway, I think I have now emerged from the slight detour of trying to pair an ECU to an Immobiliser box.
    Compared with reading and writing data to the Immobiliser box chip, this one is more like...

    Re: Spare Key

    Anyone with my level of security paranoia should probably avoid posting their data dump directly to the forum so you may prefer to PM when you've extracted the data or if he want any tips on getting...

    Re: Spare Key

    I'm happy to have a go a burning a new transponder key chip - the blanks only cost a couple of quid so its no real loss if it doesn't work.

    Re: Spare Key

    The process involves reading data from a memory chip in the immobiliser box. It's simple enough to do but does require specialised equipment. That's why the people who do this professionally have a...

    Re: Spare Key

    I'm reasonably confident I could produce a working transponder chip for the green labelled box if I was emailed a dump from the memory chip. Also a good probability I can extract the 5 digit security...

    Re: Spare Key

    I think the yellow plastic boxes are the earlier "code" immobiliser from 155 era cars so may not be useable with a "code2" era ECU. There is also a later blue box that I think is CF3 era ECUs.
