FIAT MAREA 185 advice on changing ignition switch

I have just purchased 1 ECU all door locks boot Lock a key code reader and ignition key and switch. all are second hand and came from the same car. I am happy with fitting all except the ignition switch. The part sent is the bit that fits inside the plastic housing. The problem with the car is proberbly the key code unit or ECU . so can I change just these parts and use my original key and barell Car is old P reg marea weekend which I love

Should be able to - just open up your key and replace the crystal inside

card reader dont you mean code reader thats the aerial around the ignition switch. or do you mean the code box thats in the same area as the fusebox (in front of drivers right knee). the codebox is a black thing if you have one to fit at least youll know exactly what to look for. if you swap your ecu and codebox and key chips over it should work unless the problem is a wiring fault which is commonly the cause of immob failures.

The problem with changing the transponder over is that it is buried in the key head and you have to cut head up to get it out. Its easy to remove the ign lock- Undo bottom surround from steering column. Put key in lock and turn to ignition on. Locate the pawl through aperture in plastic housing and press in. Pull out on key andor lever switch out with screwdriver.

FIAT MAREA 185 Problem with one of the blue keys

I have recently purchased a marea 2.4TD and it came with 2 blue keys and the red key. The problem I have is that one of the blue keys will do everything (deactivate alarm open doors etc) but gets no further than switching ignition on as it will not deactivate the security key symbol. Do I have to go to fiat specialist or dealer to re-program the key Any idea of costs Cheers

Hi just got a second hand ignition barrel and key and just wondered if any one knows how to key the code in for it and how much would it cost from a dealer And how do i change my user name cos i fked it up Thanks in advance trev.

if you have your original red key then you dont need to change your codebox and ecu . you can use the red key to teach the car any other key. if you dont have your original red key then you do need the matching ecu and codebox from the car the new key came from. you dont need to use the ignition switch you can simply take the new keys chip out and place it inside your old key allowing your old key

FIAT MAREA 185 Lost ALL keys to my car - HELP PLEASE

Hi all I have a 1997 fiat marea and have lost my one and only key to the car. It was the blue key too. Luckily its unlocked but I have spoken to a fiat garage who tell me that to get a new key I need the red key which I dont have. They said even if I got a barrel and key from a breakers I would need the ECU etc. Is this really the case The car has 10 months MOT and I think after that it will be good

It will not start without the transponder in the key being near the ignition switch as you say that is the immobiliser doing its job. Unless you can find the key the only way is with an ecu key swap.

Ah ha I see now. Damn. I did not realise that there was something in the actual key plastic itself I can see a small lead coming off the top of the ignition just where the key goes in I am guessing thats it. So even if I bypassed the immobiliser it still would not start Looks like I have written off my car then -( Originally Posted by bpetersb It will not start without the transponder in the key being

FIAT BRAVA 182 Black Switch behind ignition replace help

hi guys you might have read some idiots tried to knick my car but immobiliser stopped them. What dicks. I need to get a new ignition barrel. was gona go for a barrel and door handles off a mareva if possible would the barrel fit its a 2.0 hgt 155. if not will have to get barrel and locks off a bravo. Now do i need them off another 2.0 hgt 155 or any bravo will keep the chip from the one blue key ive

any bravo brava or marea can be used as a donor for the barrel and switch. replacement is easier than you expect. you can grind the tumblers down on the new barrel (with your old key inserted in the barrel) then it will match your old key. that way you dont need to replace your other locks (doors boot govebox).

I have tried the emergency overide but the fuel injector

battery problems often cause the immob system to freeze up like this. i think the battery is by far the most likely cause since it packed up last week. if a new battery doesnt solve the problem then you need to check the immob fuse i the enigne bay and also wiggle the wires on the ignition switch aerial.

FIAT MAREA 185 orange keycode light

my 1999 marea td 1.9td100 started to show a orange keycode light on the dash today. on trying to start the engine turns over but glowplug light doesnt light. garage says blue key not being recognised. ( i dont have a red key .. doh )but an hour later the fault went off.. phew mechanic i spoke to seemed to thinkthat it might be possible to remove the disabling from the fuel pump as it seems its only

you are correct the immob simply disconnects the fuel pumps earth if you give the pump a permanent earth you will bypass the immob. however you dont need to do that the fact that your fault is intermittent shows that you have the common connector fault. this is usually the connector on the aerial around the ignition switch or the connector in the codebox near the fusebox (in front of drivers right

oh dear another unsuspecting buyer stung with the fiat key game. youve got a bit of a problem there. the easiest (and cheapest) long term solution is to get the ignition lock reset so it will accept the old red key. any lock can be reconfigured to accept any key. you want the ignition to match the door so this is a good thing to do anyway. with the ignition working on the old red key you than have

FIAT BRAVA 182 Red key but no blue keys.

Hey all im looking at getting a diesel bravo but the car has only the red keys but no blue keys if i get to random keys from any other bravos and just get blanks cut could i programme any other codes to the ecu

there should only be 1 red key. check that it is an original fiat key. to check that the red key is really the red key and not a clone of a blue key you should switch the ignition on and check that the key code light goes out then switch ignition off and back on within 5 secs. the key code light should now remain illuminated if it does not then you havent used the red key. assuming it is the red key

have you checked if your sparkplugs are sparking on your car there is no point trying them in your bros car you need to determine fi your coil pack is firing the plugs on your car. if it isnt then the crankshaft position sensor is the most likely cause. another option is the immob. if the key code light is remaining illuminated then it means the immob is not switching off BUT when using a red key the

Then remove the wires and buzz out the switch in the on position then you should be able to make an educated guess as to the pins which would be connected if it was in the off position and thus you can re-attach the wires in a new order to simulate it actually being turned off.

Joker

Model specific alarm questions are better off in the car sections IMO i know of the switch you refer to however its never been fitted on either of the mareas i have owned ive been lead to believe that it is operated by the ignition key but i assume this isnt the case how many wires are going into the switch and if possible can you tell the colours if you can provide this i may be able to find it on the wiring diagrams atleast to see how to override it.

be the problem since the engine definately cant bump start if the immob is on. however it is odd that the key code light remains on as that suggests the immob is actually staying on. when the key code light remains on try switching the ignition off for a second and then back on if the light then goes out it means you probably have a clone of the red key rather than a blue key.

FIAT MAREA 185 Marea 1.6 Auto - Problems with Starter Motor

Hi I hope that someone can give me some advice. My partners marea suddenly decided yesterday that it would not start. I had a quick look last night and my unproffessional opinion was that it was a problem with the starter motor. There was no problem with the lights they came on and did not dim so that appeared to rule out the battery and turning the key just led to a quick succession of clicks that

The quick succession of clicks that you mentioned at the start show that some power is getting to the starter solenoid but thats just the sort of sound it makes if there isnt enough power eg low battery or poor battery earth connections. Pamper me and redo your battery connections and redo check the battery has a good earth contact to the engine as its a common problem and will cause all your symptoms.

immobiliser is not switching off try the red key. if red key doesnt work either then you have an immob fault often something as simple as the immob ecu s fuse connections are rusty or the aerial around the ignition barrel has a loose connector or the codebox near the interor fusebox has a bad connection.

FIAT MAREA 185 Another Fuel Guage Problem

Hi everyone. My old man has a fiat marea Weekend td100 (Im pretty sure its a 2000 model) with a strange fuel guage issue.

If the car is left for more than a couple of days the battery drains. Hes fitted a new sender unit and a new battery but still cant get to

disconnect the tank sender unit at the tank and see if the gauge moves. given that its staying up with the ignition off its quite likely then that the gauge needle is stuck in the cluster in which case you could dismantle it to find out why - sometimes a piece of dust or dirt can jam the gauge mechanism. just remove the cluster (small allen key needed) and pull the front cover off the cluster (its

FIAT MAREA 185 Seat belt removal

Hi all need to replace seat belt for the MOT on my marea. Can any one give me some advice on its removal is it safe for me to disconnect the 12 volt cable (not sure what its called but the belt has a module attached which i believe makes the seat belt tighten up when in an accident ) to the seat belt. Ian

make sure you disconnect batery before you disconnect the pretensioner. in most cases you will be ok as long as you do not switch ignitionon with it disconencted but to prevent airbag system faults it is ebst to disconnect battery and wait 15mins before you disconnect the pretensioner. seatbelt removal is easy enough but the bolts require a fairly large torx bit. a torx key usually wont be enough to loosen them so a ratchet is needed. iansea100 thanked for this post

it wont be the key imo they are bullet proof. most common fault is the connection at the aerial on the ignition switch (wiggle its wire) and also the connection at the codebox behind the dash (wiggle its wire) and alsop a rusty immob fuse holder in the engine bay (clean it)
