What a pain. Start Googling, wouldn't know where to start. No

All I do know is, better now than in the middle of the Sahara. Obvious thing to say I realise, but it does make you think.

Look on the Cobra website as it is a mine of information, if you can get the identity number of the module you can download a manual from the site, or contact them by E-mail or phone at their helpdesk, has several dealings with them and they are brilliant.

Fine keeping it, just have a spare fob and door/ignition keys cable-tied out of sight to the underside of the vehicle. Simple but effective.

Also have spare house key buried in the garden in an old SLR film container. Nobody but myself and 'er indoors know it's there, but it came in handy the other day when a Yale key broke off in the lock. I was away but a neighbour helped her out by removing the broken part from the lock with a pair of long nosed pliers, then she simply used the freshly unearthed spare key to get in. Would have cost a few pennies otherwise calling up a locksmith. Phew, foresight worked a treat! Very Happy
