Immobiliser by-pass for an EDC 300TDi

Hi,

Have been hanging around on here for a while, but not posted much as I have not had anything to ask.

However, The immobiliser on my 1996 300TDi Auto with EDC is showing early signs of imminent death, ie not always de-immobilising. I have done the usual and changed the remote batteries and also fitted a new good vehicle battery. But every now and then the car will not start (in fact all I get is the usual dash lights but not the starter turning.) if I wait between 5 and 10 minutes the damn thing starts fine.

So anyway I decided after reading Bogmonsters guide to spider repair (and being an electronics engineer with no fear of soldering) to take the dash apart (was also fitting a new headunit) and repair the little black box. Here arrises the problem, Dash all out, expect to see little black box but nothing there, B****r, Ok consult the RAVE disc I have (North American but close enough) and find that the EDC equipped vehicles don't have the little black box!!!!!.

So as the title says, how do I disable/remove/bypass the immobiliser and alarm from my wagon?

Ideally would like to junk the whole system and install an aftermarket one at a later date.

Anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

Pete.

I'll second the vote for Remotekey - he's helpful and the prices are very reasonable - MUCH cheaper than a main stealer.
