Hey guys, quick question when i start the car up after 2 minutes of driving the red flashing light on the dash like the alarm is on/off ( its not me bouncing of the limiter and ive checked battery connections and reset for 1 hour too) any thoughts on what it is and how to fix it? Only started happening. ive hooked it up to my obd reader and nothing, nor lack of performance either. On 2006 exige s2

OK I believe that's a reflash on the original ECU so shouldn't have the flashy lights issues I get with my SSC ECU ( I just ignore them!)

Any other ideas. Ive cleaned battery terminals and tried a new battery still flashing after 40 odd seconds

Is your battery light flashing on off? Occasionally or all the time? Or is it a different light?

Not the battery light. The rev limit / immobiliser light while driving. (It does it when upto temp too) flashes every second. Someone thinks it might be the resistance in fuse 13 so thats my next look

I had this a long long time ago and it was something to do with the imoblser, I had to do something daft wth the key fob

Put the key in, turn so the dash lights come on then do something with the buttons

Sorry not much help but I think even if you hold both buttons together it does a reset

Worth a try
