Does anyone know how to disable an immobilizer on a VR (no im not stealing one, it's mine) my VR is permanently immobilized. I've tried taking the engine fuse out, and disconnecting the battery. I can override the immobilizer by turning the key to ON, waiting 45min, then turning it to start. But this makes my VR very unsuitable for bank jobs.

If I'm correct you'll need a Memcal with no VAT included to override that "very secure" security feature LOL

There used to be a bloke on Gumtree who disables the VATS in the BCM. He used to charge $45 - $50 IIRC. Mine has been disabled in the BCM but it does throw a code 31 now that won't go away, even with my VATS disabled memcal.

Check the contact ring is good around the key hole.

Good spotting Wot !

Yes those readers around the Key hole can be problematic and you don't even know that it's fractured internally.

I've always been of the opinion that when you mess around with factory systems they'll always throw a spanner into the works as a repay favour LOL !!

Doesn't the ring stop it cranking rather than activate or disable VATS? I had a VATS problem a few years ago when fitting a new memcal, it cranked but wouldn't fire. I have a problem with mine now that the key has worn down that it stops it from cranking, every now and then.
