Immobiliser Issue Need Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I have just bought a Ford Fiesta 1.2 2002 (yesterday) it was running fine yesterday although the engine light was lit on the dashboard. We have checked oil, coolant etc and all are near max. We then looked in the glove box to check the fuses shown as the ones for the engine light and they were both fine. But we have now gone to start the car and the immobiliser has kicked in so the car is no longer starting at all!

We have tried both keys and neither are working.

The codes being read are 77 and 16 (may be wrong if read incorrectly)

Please could someone with any idea as to how we can fix this please let me know.

Also does anyone know if RAC can fix this problem as because it isn't starting we can't even get it to a garage to get it fixed.

Thanks guys

You probably need an auto locksmith to resolve it.

77 I dont believe is a valid code, though 1:6 indicates that you likely have an electrical fault.

Check the earthing around the battery, and make sure its clean and secure.

Is 1-6 what your seeing from the PATS light or did you get that from somewhere else ?
