    Wondering if anyone can help me... Enjoying my little red 2003 mx-5 1.6, when the engine dies while driving. No spark, but still turns over. Call the dreaded recovery guys who tow it back to the house but not before he suggests it's the coil pack that's failed. From extensive research I've...

    First of all, hello everyone. Now for the problem :/ I've recently purchased a 1995 eunos roadster 1.8. The problem is the transponder is on a fob rather than on the key (a common thing I'm led to believe with imports.) My question is where can I find the correct transponder chip and program it...

    Hi guys, Wondering if you can help. I've owned my mk 2.5 RS for nearly a year now, and recently have noticed a few oddities. A few weeks back I was investigating an RPM increase whilst stationary in gear (clutch down) which was caused by the clutch switch being disconnected. I pulled off the...

    Hi all, I've been having some issues with my annoying immobilizer system, all of which stem from I don't really know how it works and neither did the person I bought it from. It's a Sigma system of some form and I have a keypad (mounted on the passenger side!!!!) and a little remote fob that...

    Ok, so hopefully you guys can be of help! My father in law, while I was away in Ireland, decided to take some bits from my mx5 onto his very similar eunos. In the process of this he managed to lose my last remaining dallas key fob. This has left me without a car for a number of weeks. after...

    I have a uk 1996 mk1 1.8. It has a factory immobiliser fitted. My understanding is that there is a chip/diode in the key, a receiver in the ignition key barrel which feeds to decoder unit under the bonnet. If this recognises the code it sends out a message to the ecu to let the engine run. The...
