Default Thieving scum

Some thieving F#####s tried taking my car yesterday in broad daylight. This has resulted in me not being able to use it as they have totally shagged the ignition and steering lock. Question is if i fit an import steering column and by pass the uk imobiliser will this be possible or will I encounter problems??? Only thinking bout this option cause I can't find a uk spec column with key reader for immobiliser.

Bad news Rich but at least you still have your car.

I swapped the steering column over on my my99 classic (as ignition key kept falling out of original barrel). I managed to bag a column (with immob gubbins attached), door/boot locks & set of keys for 55 on ebay.

If you need a hand in swapping things over, just let me know mate.

Glad they didn't get your car but sorry it's damaged. Goodluck with the repairs and if you ever find out who did it....well....lets just say I know a few people who shall we say would like to meet them
They'll get theirs one day, thieving scum!

Thanks guys, I would love to know who did it. Had it finger printed today so with a bit of luck the amatuers will get done. Got a few bits ordered so should be up and running by weekend. Give you a shout Notfub and rf555 as I probably could with a hand.

There's plenty of room out the front of my house mate - at least it's off the road, if you need the space let me know

Presuming it's drivable at some point............

Cheers si, but I think it will have to stay outside the misses house until I can get the immobiliser bypassed.

Got the steering column and hjust had a mad half hour afeter work and pulled the old one out and put it in, wired it up and now i just gota put the steering wheel on. It did start momentarily but the cel light was flashing like mad and it cut out. I have disconnected the battery in hope that it will reset the ecu and we are go. Well thats the theory any way.

Glad things are coming together Mate I hope the glitch with the CEL gets sorted for you, I read on here that starting the classic car repeatdely can re-set the ECU not sure if the car has to run each time or if you just turn it over - I think I read you had to this around 5 times May help Mate Someone may know if that's right

Reset the ecu by connecting the green plug and black plug, got code 53. which amongst alot of faults brings up un recognised key. Is there a way I can wipe this fault and bypass this reader/immobiliser????? Anyone who knows how to do this, PM me as this shouldn't be put on a public forum for thiefs to learn what to do.
