    Default Peugeot 206 engine immobiliser?

    How does the immobiliser work?

    I have bought a Peugeot 206 2006 to repair but can't get it to start,been sitting in a yardforsome time.
    The key looks original with the plip in the key base.

    I will check the spark and the fuel pump but i read the handbook and wondered if the car has been immobilised?

    If it's anything like 306/406 there should be a reset button in the engine bay adjacent to the the LHS strut or the fire wall. It'll probably be a black button with a rubber shroud.

    My 206 is causing trouble with an immobiliser fault . The immobiliser is a computer function. The key has a transponder which is a collar around the key barrel (under the plastic cover). These cars HATE flat batteries. You need a scanner to connect to the OBD2 port to discover the problem, amd hopefully clear it. Hope I have given you some clues. Mine was flatbedded to an expert from my usual mechanic, who replaced the split fuel pump, but the thing STILL wouldn't start, and came up with an immobiliser fault.

    Probable cause? I killed the battery by having the hazards on too long while waiting for the tow truck when it first broke down.

    oh, and @purr-geot. The problem with buying a Honda is, you have to drive a Honda!

    When we get a wreck come in and it won't start, (providing it has compression) we bleep the doors locked and then unlock. You wouldn't believe how often this works! Also about Honda's, they are as bad as all the rest!

    Funny,i went to bed last night after reading all the articles and links.
    Thinking the worst .
    Digestion of info during sleep allowed good comprehension of a mountain of info.

    i went to the car applied the reset process to the letter, found the re-set button and the car started!

    However the engine was noisy.

    The truck driver had smashed a hole in the sump during loading!

    Many thanks for the info.
