    Hi peeps I'm wondering if anyone has had similar problem, I ought a lovely 1996 2.5 dse with a dodgy key fob the lock button worked but not unlock do I just used eka code, 2 days after I bought it key fob stopped (switch broke off board for lock) I tried eka but no joy justpeeped everytime it was turned to lock and engine key code lockout on dash and could not get alarm off, so I removed becm, ecu and sent them away with key to be sorted and when they were sent back problems.
    The keyfob is working and key works in door but that's it, all connections to becm in correct no loose or pushed out pins, power and earth cables correct, no blown fuses, nor under bonnet but all that happens is if I switch to position 2 I get fan blower but no display on climate screen, radio works, I get all lights on eassuspension setting and inhibitor switch, front wipers work, headlights but no rear wiper, no alarm, fuel cap release doesn't work nothing on dash except srs, abs pump buzzes under bonnet and if I try to start car it goes dead, everything and if I release key back to as above.
    I've recharged battery but it was reading 13.1v and been suggested there is a problem still with becm so I've sent it away again with key and ecu but I also noticed it wasn't my becm that was sent back but was my ecu but was told they were coded together and both working on test car so I'm wondering if anyone has had similar
    Also I've checked main power to engine fuse box and it's OK and no funny smells or obvious signs of corrosion

    Big mistake, it is unlikely there was a problem with the BECM in the first place.
    You need diagnostics to turn off the EKA code and immobiliser.
    I don't know where you sent the BECM, but they may have fecked it. Callrova are the only place I know that can actually fix BECM's, but they rarely fail.
    Is the carpet and/or underlay wet in the drivers footwell by any chance?
    Are you sure the battery terminals are clean and tight?

    No it was a fella from Facebook forums that is highly regarded and no bad feedbacks so I'm hoping it's an isolated mistake

    There are a few folk on here with Nanocom's, you could try and see if one of them is near you and can remove all the EKA security for the time being. I would, and have done as much for people local to me.
    However, you are up in bonnie Scotland I see. Take a look on the LZIR map for someone local to you.
    @martyuk does hire his fully licensed one out, with an appropriate refundable deposit required I believe.

    Hi , have you got AA/RAC breakdown / relay cover ?????? they could bring it back to you or poss get a local comp to recover it for you , theres plent og garages up there wich have their own recovery trucks , i.e. min 3 ton !!! .,this will get local council off your back !!!!! . now without being pedantic , your story sounds a bit strange in the fact that you said it lost all electrics and accessability 2 days after you bought it !!! i.e. fob & bits breaking off ??? so who did you talk to about becm etc stripping it all out and sending it all off , cos theres nothing from you in previous post enquiring about , re-syn - eka - battery poer etc etc etc , seems you have gone off on a wild expensive goose chase , im only trying to help you here so please don't talke offence ,, as there is loads and loads of lads on here who will all try help & solve your problems without you spending a penny , and theres lot of lads up in Scotland who ive helped in the past who would help too and theres a few with diagnostics to help sort things out , whereabouts are you based
    ?????? and it would be usefull to know where you sent the becm and other bits … ok bob now 1st thing before becm comes back isto charge battery fully it needs 14.32 v to maintain a p38 . 2nd thing what battery do you have on car u need 1000ca , so I think uyou have a voltmeter ??? sor you can check things also do u have a ampmeter ???? so as to check things out once car is all connected etc with fully charged battery etc . im quite happy to pm you my number and will happily help u over phone !!!! free of charge . so its there if you need . lastly is this this the 1st P38 you have owned ???? & how many keys do you have , all info is useful for us to help you . are you ok on the spanners . ok bob leave it with you kind regards Mozz, let me know .
