    Hi. For the year I’ve had this T6, there have always been two two faults codes from Carista: 05273 05459 The van runs and starts like a dream. @mmi rightly suggested this: I had the battery tested and it’s tip-top. I’m aware that these might be ghost codes from Carista, but don’t have VCDS...

    Disconnecting Battery - Impact On Immobiliser

    No abuse please. Want to lock van, then disconnect battery as away for month. Is the immobiliser still operating when battery disconnected? I assume it will remain locked at least. I don't want to leave it on trickle charge. Appreciate your replies in advance. Thanks.Bluey.

    3rd Key

    when I bought my van I was given 3 keys. 2 of them are the remote key fobs that work as expected. I also received a ‘normal’ key. Non folding no big fob. What is the point of this key? If I open the door with this key the alarm goes off.

    Immobilisers Direct - Veil Tuning
