Hi
\015\012Had a similar problem with my x type 2.5 petrol, only had the car 1 day went to start it nothing happend all the lights came up on the dash but the engine wouldn't start and the immobiliser light stayed on. Spoke to Jaguar they had no idea and I couldn't get it to them. After disconnecting the battery trying to reset the immobiliser phoned and auto locksmith they came out and discovered the end of the key with the blade had lost it's coding and the immobiliser was not disarming, they reprogrammed the key and the car started no problem. As far as i know there is no way past the immobiliser. Hope this helps.

I have a 1992 automatic honda prelude. When I try and start it, either hot or cold, (seems worse when engine is cold) I sometimes only hear a click with no engine crank. the dash lights turn on. Sometimes when it does crank, it seems like something has a lose connection as it seems to crank a little then not while the key is slighty moved. I dont know if its a bad connection in the ignition key switch, or somewhere in the engine. Please help. Thank You; Alex
