    Immobiliser problem

    At no specific time or under any specific circumstances my immobiliser is kicking in, car starts runs for a few seconds and cuts out, then won't start afterwards. I have to get out the car lock it, wait for the immobiliser to reset about 15 minutes and get back in and starts fine. Fuel pumps are priming and everything.

    Noticed I've been using the second key so now have both keys with me just incase it happens again.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Car is 03 plate 1.8 sri

    Not as of yet it only starting happening yesterday. The battery doesn't seem to sound like it's being drained when the starter motor is turning over

    That's not the immobiliser. Unless it's aftermarket.
    Factory immobiliser allows the engine to run for a couple of seconds then cuts the ignition if it doesn't detect the right key, you also get a flashing warning light on the dash.

    That's what's happening. Then I have to lock car up for about 15 minutes then try again...

    Is that why every now and again the alternator light comes on and the speedo and rev counter stop working until I turn the car off and try again?

    That could also be related to the crankshaft sensor being faulty
    but the car cutting out and taking time to restart is definitely the clocks loose. Had the problem on my old C and sometimes you would drive and the clocks would drop to zero.

    ^^ push your clocks in, thumb at the bottom of the glass index finger at approx 7000 rpm and gently push you will hear a CLICK.

    then see if you get any more problems.
