Re: immobilser probs?
I had exactly the same problem on my 110 300 and it was certainly the
immobiliser. I "solved" the problem by fitting a separate wire,
suitably fused, via a switch under the dashboard to the solenoid on
the pump. When the beast died as you describe, a quick flick on the
switch and I was away. I could have fitted a permanent wire from the
"ignition" switch but that would have totally defeated the object of
In an emergency, I even ran a wire from the cigarette lighter to the
solenoid and it at least got me home. Then I fitted the switch.
