Immobiliser emergency override


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Yesterday I parked my Evora at a spot which had some radio interference and I couldn't lock the car with the key fob when I got out. Consequently I was also not able to disarm the immobiliser from within the car when I returned. So I tried to do the emergency override procedure according to the manual but failed. The LED blinks so fast, that I see no way to count the flashes for the PIN. I'm suspecting, that I couldn't get into the procedure to begin with. So my question is, does the override procedure work at all if the alarm has not been set off before? If so, how would I go at arming the alarm without the fob working? Appreciate your help on this if I get into the same situation again. 

In the end I managed to roll-off a few meters as I had parked on an incline and the fob started working again.

If it’s flashing so fast you can’t count them then you’ve probably failed in the process. 
 

my key failed once, it does work but it is a real pain to get it right. You need to follow the instructions precisely and get your timing spot on. I think it took me about a dozen goes to get it to work.

Yes, exactly what I'm thinking as well. So did you get it to work without having an alarm triggered? I did follow the instructions precisely. Also there is conflicting information between the owners manual and the service notes.

The 400 owners manual calls for one on/off within 3s after the alarm has ended. The service notes call for 2x on/off within 3s after the alarm has sounded. 

So can the override be done at all without having the alarm triggered? And how do I arm the system if the fob doesn't work after parking?

My alarm was on and the car locked, so it was opened manually with the key and the alarm set off. 
 

Unfortunately it was around 5 years ago so I don’t remember the detail.
