I'm having a problem that I have not been able to research, on this forum as well as in the Lotus service manual and cobra detailed manual.
My car seems to work normally but I need to program a new key. So I set the immobilizer, get the red light blinking. Then cycle the ignition 3 times. Red light stays on 3 seconds just like it's supposed to.
Then when I turn the key back on, I'm supposed to see the blinking light for the PIN. Instead, I get a single long beep that lasts about 15-30 seconds. After that it just goes back to blinking as though the alarm just got set.
I've checked the position of the light. The alarm seems to work normally with respect to the motion sensor. It doesn't signal any issues when I lock the car, just the normal two beeps.
I'm not sure what to do next--and can't find any reference to this issue.
Thanks in advance for any help folks can provide.
