Re: Dead Multipla or not !

Swapped the innards of the key with the original , swapped the code box , left the Aerial, as it should be the same and changed the Ecu , wary of starting and went back to shop with bad battery.

Re: Dead Multipla or not !

White stick pointing at imobiliser chip
If you have this style of key.
You need to keep this chip its glued into it's half of key shell , the pcb is programmed to the remote locking unit in car.
So you need to move just the half shell with the glass chip in it from you replacement key to your existing key.Click image for larger version

Re: Dead Multipla or not !

Yes it’s the same , the whole pcb and chip have been swapped , so you think this is a step too far ?
I dare say the doors are programmable as I’ve done this with L/r, however easily rectified.

Just swap the printed circuit boards back over so you have your existing key with just the back(with glass chip) of the new key.

Thank you for saying that , that makes it all worth while

Another multi saved too.

If it's no bother when you use the multipla more if you find electrical things that don't work please update on here.
