Its possibly the key reader. With some of these vehicles, during the dry months they start OK, but as soon as it gets damp, the engine won't crank. Check also the main harness leading fron the engine compartment at the left rear of the engine bay where the harness enters the passenger compartment, there is a large rubber plug that fits on the harness. Is this Harness secured into position.

so how much is to fix the transponder reader.


We will have to have a look at the Computer Box, the key reader and keys together to determine the price, but we start at R1490. If its the key reader only, it could could come down in price. It all depends on what is wrong .


i found the problem , the computer box is wet , do i need to replace and get a new one if so how much do you charge for another computer box.

Hi brother Kutullo Ihave the similar problem. I went to attend a funeral ,when i was supposed to go back home the car didn't want to start till to date. The security light flashes five times and stops. Was your problem fixed by taking the computer box,keys and key reader to the technician.


We repair these units. The Light next to the clock will flash quickly for a while, then will stop and flash up two sets of codes.
