Is there a way to permanently disable the immobiliser and alarm? They are extremely irritating, especially the inconvenience when the battery is flat or the remote and the alarm system go out of sync.

Yes, Pull the plug on the alarm and splice together the two pair of wires at each end of the immobilizer plug (below is my original photo/diagram). Or, you could program the immobilizer to not passively (automatically)arm.

The entire alarm system in an Elise is evil rubbish. There could be a whole website for the trouble and tears it's made.

Can turn off the alarm through one of the programings done with the key. I could find it if you don't have the directions.

It would be much appreciated if you could dig up the instructions on how to turn off the darn thing. I basically want the thing off permamently and stop being a drain on my battery.

I've found the demonic installation manual and the owners manual on pdf file but did not find those directions there. It involved sitting behind the wheel for quite a while turning the key on and off in a long winded sequence. I did this a few times but the damn thing always turned itself back on. :evil:

Eventually it just had to be physically separated from the then much improved car.

When I got mine out I put it in a container of salt water. Exorcism completed.

I'm sure those directions are in LT somewhere. Unfortunately I think you need a four digit code, unique to each vehicle, to do it that way.

Is that the plug behind the driver seat? Was going to get my car tuned today, and immobilizer wouldnt work. Changed battery and nothing. Hit inertia switch, still nothing. I need to completely disable this piece of garbage.

A charger and a battery isolator might be helpful for you, as your problem could be argued to be the battery.
Is it a standard battery?

I bought off eliseparts the immobiliser bypass. By simply fixing this will it disable the alarm as well? Because I would like too.

I just intend to keep the remote lock and unlock function. Dont need the rest.

I can't help you, but the previous owner of my Elise disabled the alarm/immobilizer by pulling it from the car. Every time I read these types of threads or hear if being locked out due to a dead battery I'm glad. I just use the key to lock/unlock. Not like I park it anywhere I'd need an alarm anyways...

It will only affect the immobilizer, however I am not sure that using this bypass that you will not get a trouble signal from the alarm.

Is there a trick to getting the connector apart? I have been fighting mine for some time now and cannot get the pieces separated.

Not in town tonight but if no one else chimes in I will find ours and study whatever clips it has. Will be a couple of days though.

Thanks, it looks like one of my tabs is broken off, so I am having a hard time pressing it. I think that's what my problem is, but I could just be doing it all wrong. I will probably go by the store tomorrow night and get simple splices, but it will still be helpful if you can show how to pop it off.

So, one would disconnect the plug, do the jump (fuel & starter) leave it un-connected and all is good to go ?
I have a 08, is there a difference?

Also trying to get a FOB duplicate key & alarm...any suggestions ?

Great, thanks

Great, thanks

If you are getting a new key and fob in the near future, the process to synch it up is not too different from the process to disable the passive immobilization. Check out SirLotus' sig for the process, and the service manual also lists it. That is going to be your best bet by far. In a distant second place, you can jump those two pairs of wires and be able to run the car without the fob, but you'll also get a blinking light on the dash.
