    Default 2009 TK Barina won't fire thinking immobiliser

    So my boys Barina got a flat battery, and now even with fully charged battery it won't fire up. Cranks over perfectly, plenty of spark.

    The immobilizer light flashes on the dash, key remote locks and unlocks doors

    If I tip a bit of petrol down the intake it'll fire up on that but it's not injecting fuel. The fuel pump has been replaced (Mr RACQ man thought it was that and a new one was ordered before tests were done)

    Got a Tech2 clone and no codes show

    Has anyone got any ideas before I put it on a trailer and tow it 200km to a dealer?

    Its common for immobiliser units to disable the fuel injectors ( when the immobiliser is active ) so if the immobiliser light is still on that appears to be the problem. The immobiliser chip inside the key is separate to the module which controls the door locks and alarm.

    maybe try removing all the ECU fuses and hope it resets itself. If you have the spare key available you can try that. Maybe a mobile locksmith can clone the faulty key , not sure

    Try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes witch will cause all ECU's to reboot like hitting a reset button.

    I tried disconnecting the battery overnight but didn't help. Also checked all the fuses (pulled fuse and checked continuity with multimeter)

    Might see if the local mechanic can do something with his Snap-On tool tomorrow. But thinking being Holden it'll require their proprietary software.

    Try this. it works with my sons Commodore.

    Turn the ignition until the dash warning lights come on.
    With key still in the ignition, Press the unlock button and then start the car.
