    Meaning it's most likely the PCB (circuit board) is starting to fail with a complete fail sooner than later, moisture is a great killer.

    So now both keys are doing the same thing. Might be time to take my pants off and go see Holden.

    I've put two new batteries in both FOB's. The battery in the car is about 2 years old and cranks fine.

    Replaced battery in problem key, still says “engine immobilised” on dash. Spare good key is fine, no issues.
    Mechanic said it’s a problem with the key, and to see a key specialist and it would probably need replacing.

    Well i booked mine in with Holden on wednesday. Cant get into see them until the 23rd. BUT since making the call the bloody thing hasn't played up since. You can guarantee that if i cancel it will reappear.
    Reminds me of my old VY SS where the gauge for no reason started reading full constantly. Spent $700 at the local Holden dealer for it to fix it's self after a month of reading full constantly.
    Bloody Holdens.

    I’m going to get a replacement key, $180 for aftermarket, $280 for genuine, or $500 from Holden lol
