    Thumbs down Oops.. Citroen Saxo Vtr Troubles.

    After purchasing a Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 8v from a bloke down the road that had failed its MOT due to having a gaping hole in the exhaust, I brought the car for use to drive around the farm, not thinking about the car being installed with an immobiliser I started to remove the ignition barrel as I was wanting to install a Ignition Starter Panel like this One (http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/perfor...n-switch-panel)

    I was aware doing this mean there would be no need for a key to start the car but since it was only going to be a field car It wouldn't matter, besides you still need the key to release the steering-wheel lock, After finding which of the 4 wires did what, I found the two starter wires and was left with another 2 which I assumed would be the power/ignition ect, I cut all four wires and then attached them to the starter panel accordingly, the starter button works fine but clearly the engine will not turn over due the the fuel pump is still powered off and so is all the other electronics.

    I then found inside the ignition-barrel was an immobiliser ring that picked up a chip in the key.. Ofcourse it was to late to do anything as I had already cut the off the other 4 wires going to the immobiliser chip sensor or what ever you wish to call it.

    Is there anyway for me to remove the immobiliser or bypass it to allow the ignition panel to power all the needed electronics in the car?
    for obvious reasons its not a great idea to post it directly on here so PM or email me any info @ tdzmuzza@ live. co. uk

    Thanks

    You could send the ECU to BBA Reman and ask them to remove the immobiliser circuit?

    How much would one expect this to cost roughly?
