In all fairness to BOPHACK, the link requires you to sign up for SCRIBD. Perhaps the document could be posted on a site that does not require a subscription?

I have one of these kits laying around that I never installed. I'll see if it has instructions with it. If so, I'll reply here or shoot you a PM. Maybe I can scan and e-mail. I just can't remember if there were instructions with it or not.

I don't have this part (though I Prob should) but I didn't have to subscribe to anything. I'm using an Apple product just to clarify but when I click the link it simply asked if I wanted to download the app or just view... I clicked view and it came up no problem.

Strange hmm

Can I grab a copy of the instructions too? I'd love to see them before I buy an immobilizer to see how involved this project will be. Thanks!

LOCKED OUT OF YOUR 2005 to 2007 LOTUS BECAUSE THE WIRELESS REMOTE STOPS WORKING, NO PROBLEM, JUST USE THIS TOUCH KEY TO UNLOCK THE DOORS AND DISARM THE ALARM / IMMOBILIZER.
As some of us have unfortunately found out, that if the car is locked with the alarm wireless remote, it can’t then be opened with the key. If the wireless remote is lost, or should fail, because of low battery, a defect, or loss of synchronization or programming, the result is being locked out of the car and the inability to disarm the alarm / immobilizer.
To address this problem, this integrated system kit will allow the capability of arming and disarming of the alarm / immobilizer, including the unlocking (not locking) of the doors, all from the outside of the car without using a operating wireless remote.
An additional benefit is that should you gain entry without disarming the alarm / immobilizer and the system goes into an alarm condition with the siren sounding and the lights flashing, there is no need to try to remember and enter the PIN to turn off the alarm, instead, simply use this new device.
The basis of the system is a small coded electronic key that attaches to your key ring and receptacle that would be mounted externally in a location that makes it almost undetectable. The installation would entail, easy mounting of the receptacle and routing of just two wires, one to the alarm module and one locally to ground.
All components, including 1 Touch Key & 1 Receptacle in a water tight enclosure, wiring, connectors (additional Touch Keys are just $39 each); you need only to supply some silicone adhesive. The kit includes OEM Cobra components that were developed to be integrated into the Cobra 8186 that is used in all 2005 to 2007 Elise and Exige models. Lotus decided not to include this valuable feature that was actually included on later versions of the Esprit.
