Hi Tony, Welcome to the FF.

U1600 = Electronic key-immobiliser system fault

Could mean you key is not being recognised.

U1600 is very common & can be ignored unless you are having starting problems (this error common on mk2 puntos)

Would be inclined to agree. Our Barchetta (mark II - 05 plate) is always throwing this error code. The other half tends to "intsert, turn and go" faster than the Millenium Falcon, only to be sometimes temperarily locked out by the system. A key removal and start more slowly has always resolved the issue. Interstingly this lockout more often occurs when trying to start the car when warm and after a quick stop of a few minutes.
