    Disconecting Immobiliser unit. (FIXED!!! I hope)

    G'day,
    The immobiliser on my '95 Discovery 300tdi cut in today while driving through the bush and shut the motor down, PITA!!! This is the third time in 5 days. As I don't have any remote thingy for it and it's apparently been playing up for years, I'm thinking of pulling it all out cause I can't have this happening while my wife is driving into town and back (40ks) with no mobile coverage most of the way.
    Has anyone pulled these things out that can give me a few pointers.
    Thanks, Ian.

    I had a problem with my '04 Defender which was traced to loose wiring. The fix we came up with in Birdsville was to pull the central locking fuse.

    Thanks rmp,
    doing a bit more research tonight, through the paperwork that came with the car and discovered the alarm/immoboliser unit is a Cyclops 2000 made and fitted straight after car was purchased, by Dynamco. Have found a number for them and will give them a ring tomorrow.
    Cheers, Ian.

    Is this a common problem with Defenders?

    Don't know about Defenders, I've had my Discovery less than a week, but figure if I can get rid of this prob we can start enjoying it.

    I had to have an imobiliser fitted to the Defender, it's state law here in WA.
    Not long after I had all sorts of electrical problems.

    I found the problem was not the imobiliser, but the fitting of it that caused the problems.
    The cables from the ignition switch had been pulled tight to get at them, then tied up tight.
    The load had pulled the back away from the iginition switch.

    PITA to replace.

    If the imobiliser is not fitted by a licenced installer it's not considered compliant.
    Gota be done by proffesionals :wink:

    Cheers

    FIXED!!! I hope.

    Contacted DYNAMCO in WA who made and fitted the alarm/immobiliser in '95 and spoke one of the Techs and with his advice was able to bypass the immobiliser, so hopefully no more dramas. My wife drove the 40k round trip to Nhulunbuy this arvo without any probs.
    Thanks for all the advice and help offered.
    Cheers, Ian.
