Nitro,

Did you ever fix this? I’m having the same problem.

Thanks

How long after defeating the immobiliser are your flashes reoccuring? Can you time it exactly?

I didn’t realise you replied, sorry.
After turning off the alarm and starting it up it starts blinking after about a minute, if I press the fob it stops, but then starts again a minute later; all this occurs whilst driving.

Check the fuse for the immo in the engine bay. It’s a 3A fuse in the left of the two fuse boxes,

Sorry for late reply, I don't drive it much.
Yes, I've checked all fuses, it's driving me nuts.

I did read somewhere that the flashes indicate an issue with the engine, but can't confirm that anywhere. I've plugged in an OBD Reader, but it doesn't give me anything I don't already know.

I unplugged the immobiliser and plugged in the 'thing' to bypass it, but still the flashing occurred.
I was going to try and disconnect the alarm, but not a fan to do that just yet.

I'm planning to give the ECU back to Lotus for a re-map to put it back, so the 2nd cam comes in at the original '6200 rpm'.

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance

There is also a fuse in the inspection panel for the horn. That one on mine was blown.
