Hey guys Im tired of getting lock out of my 99 hse. How can I disable the system? When doing so would Iooses the abilty to power lock the other doors? I only have the key and not the pad. I even got lock in the truck once. Message center said use key pad. Guess it went into super lock mode. Or any other tips on finding the problem would be nice. Thanks

it can be turned off via Rovacom or similar, IF the BECM isn't in "I'm being stolen" mode...

with issues like that, the drivers door lock actuator is the first suspect.

Youwould be much better off fixing the issue. THe key is the backup for the remote. THe remote is the back up for the key. As your remote is missing or not operating you only have key access. Once the latch decides to go bad you can easily be locked out of your rig with no way in.

I would also love to disable my alarm - I'm on my second lockout. Any advice? Just call up dealerships and service shops until I find someone that will do it? I'm in Chicago if anyone knows a guy in the area...

as its just cost me $1500 for a replacement BECM and factory key, also remember if the alarm is disabled and you use the remote to lock the car it will still be imobilised. This I am assured cant be turned off. if you lock the car with the key, it doesnt imobilise.

Hate that imobiliser......

Personally I have cut the superlock wires to the drivers door, so I can always unlock it and get in with a key no matter what. Saved me when my BECM locked itself and didn't have a valid EKA...

The immobiliser can be disabled, I can set the options with my Faultmate.

My alarm is enabled and the immobiliser is disabled, I can unlock and drive away with my spare keys without a wireless transmitter.

On checking the BECM options with Faultmate ,there is no option for disabling the immobiliser,only the alarm.Can you upload your BECM options screen from your Faultmate,I would like to see the difference. :think:

Although this is VE in demo mode (too lazy to drag the laptop out into the cold), this should be enough to see where you can/should find the immobiliser function.

Yikes...the dealer is charging $196 to resync the key and wants $757 to replace the driver door latch. Acts like I'm an idiot when I ask if they can just disable the immobilization.

A dealer ripping someone off? Say it aint so.... :lol:
Scotty has a complete set of door latches IIRC. I would PM him ASAP and get them. Then install yourself and drive down the road...

Ok ,but the function you are viewing does NOT disable the immobiliser,it merely enables/disables the self arming function of the immobiliser.Refer to the Help info supplied by BBS with the MSV. :thumb:

But along with disabling the EKA either the immobiliser is somehow disabled or is automatically disarmed when unlocking (as far as I know the procedure of putting in zeroes as immobiliser code was carried out on mine, too).

I never had a problem after that, and as said before the mechanical keys work, too :).

So even if the immobiliser isn't completely disabled, this procedure (EKA and immobiliser disabled, zeroes for the immobiliser code) should prevent many problems :D

As long as you lock/unlock with the key,then I think the immobiliser is switched on/off each time.I think you may have a problem if you superlock using the key and then try to unlock and start just using the key. :think: This vehicles are never simple :doh: .

correct.

Imobiliser will enable no matter what if the car is superlocked, or locked with the remote.
