zx immobiliser

Post by Dennis Rosser » Sun Mar 18, 2012 11:46 am

Hi, the BX is great,at the moment, however someone will know the answer to my ZX problem. I disconnected the battery to recharge it and now although the dash display lights up the car wont attempt to start. It has the immobiliser fob on a chain on the key ring that pushes into a slot on the dash. Has it disconnected when there was no battery and how do I reactivate it, please ?

It will be more appropriate to refer to the French Car Forum as they cover a range of Citroens. The BX was never fitted with such an immobiliser unless someone went aftermarket.

Here's a list of their topics on the ZX immobiliser. :D

That immobiliser is after market. You will need to identfy the manufacturer, and then contact them for further advice, or if you are a member of the RAC/AA, they might be able to help too.

The standard ZX immobiliser, is a digital keypad forward of the gearstick.

Can you post a photo of the fob? If it is what i think it will be (fitting a round socket with 2 metal prongs in it) i have a very quick solution for it.
I have zero patience for your tedium.
