Hi everyone, not sure if you can help me with a bit of a problem I have with my 1997 Corolla Kudos 1.3, we've had it since new and one of the keys stopped working with the immobiliser a few years ago. I had it in at the local dealer and they confirmed that the key was dead and couldn't be re-programmed so I've used the spare ever since. Unfortunately the spare has now given up the ghost also and the engine will turn over fine but the immobiliser kicks in and won't let it start. I've done a lot of work on it including a full gxi bodykit with bumpers, si bootlid, colour coded elec mirrors, 17" fox alloys, clear indicators etc but now it sits in the garage with a flat battery for months at a time and hasn't been on the road since 2010! So just wondering if by getting a second hand ECU from a slightly older 1.3 that doesn't have an immobiliser whether that would work instead of shelling out a lot of money getting new keys only to have the same issue again in the future?
Thanks in advance!
