Hi Guys

Help!!!!!

The alarm is a Conlog and the key fob is dead.

Have tried local Mazda + 11 alarm specialists and still no joy. It's been 4 weeks now and I'm going spare. Anyone got any contacts.

Specs:

MX6
South African import
Reg: 1994

Tel: 01606 74461

Thanks

Rich

Hi Rich, welcome.
Can't help personally I'm afraid, but if you're patient I'm sure someone will know.
Dave (mx6-uk) had a SA MX6 one time.

Cheers,
Ken

It depends if the alarm is an anti grab code alarm( ie every time the button is pressed it changes it code) so no one can grab the code and then re use it.

if it isnt you can buy a universal key fob, not cheap at 20 quid but will operate it, when buying you need to show id and a address, as obvously you could get into a lot of cars with this.

hope this helps

…the saga continues

OMNIFLEX who brought out the Conlog business did not take over the car alarm side. Spoke to a guy called John Vivia (very helpful) but he does not think it’s possible to get replacement parts.

He said the only way to bypass the system is to ground on of the 48 pins on the ECU. Trouble is which 1?

Watch out if you buy a Mazda with a Conlog alarm it seems once they go wrong they cannot be repaired!!

Anyone with any thoughts. I’d like to replace the system if possible but I can’t find anyone to do it.

I assume you can currently drive the car ? ( ie the immobiliser isnt currently enabled ? )

If your unfortunate enough to have it enabled then the alarm box "should" have a valet override key switch to diable it.

Then its just a case of getting a new one installed - theyll be loads of places willing to add one - most wont want to remove the old one - but if its not causeing a problem then it doesnt matter. Also acts as a great deterent / added complexity if someone does try to steal it !

Let us know its current state and we should be able to sort something out ...

Ouch!!!

I removed the alarm from my j-spec when i got it. You need to find yourself a good autoelectrician. Its not that hard to be honest if you have got a few hours. Its a case of following all the alarm wires and then remove them and rejoin the wires which where bridged through the alarm. Mine was a Cat 1 alarm and i got it out and my new alarm in in just over 2 hours.

You dont live that far from me. Do you want me to come and have a look one night later this week???

You could be my only hope... I will get i touch. Tried a number of companies, they have all walked away... Trying one last autoelectrician, well actually he's a mechanic but he's looking at it today. If not I'll take you up on that, as long as I can compensate you for your time.


Thanks

Immobilisers are great.. deter thieves from nicking your pride and joy.. notice I said deter... if they want it bad enough, and have enough time, they will take it.

The time involved in tracing the wires is too much hassle for the average twocer (taken without consent)

DELETED.........

It should't be too hard to do.. it's just the time factor.

solder all joints and tape up well.

Thanks Einstein

I’ve got to admit wiring goes way way way over my head. :confused:

To check if it was the fob we got it started by taking a positive to the starter, dizzy and fuel pump (I think), didn’t fry anything at the time I hope.

I’ll pass on the info.

TA guys

Guys


Just to say a BIG thanks for all your help.

She’s sorted, well at least drivable. @-

I won’t post how easy it is to get around the system but if anyone finds themselves in the same situation get in touch with me through one of the mods and if they agree I’ll call with details.

Off to look for s/h relay assy-security alarm and fob, haha some chance. It’s got to be easier to put in a new alarm system.


Cheers Rich

Glad you're all sorted now Rich.

I've deleted all possible 'sensitive' immobiliser info from the various posts here just in case.

As Rich says, if you have immobiliser problems along these lines he's your man...

Cheers,
Ken
