Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Model: 2006 9-5 TiD Auto
After a suspected alternator failure, the car battery was removed and charged.

Since putting the car battery back in, the key (I have only one) won’t operate central locking from the buttons (works physically using key in lock), and the car will turn over but not start.

I can see lots of “imobiloser reset” threads, but they seem to be for bladeless keys.

This is a 2006 9-5 (TiD Auto) with a metal bladed key.

There is no dash indication of an immobiliser problem nor error code.

Anyone know how to fix the issue? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

AS far as I am aware all OG9-5's have bladed keys so any threads on the 9-5 may help. Assuming the key battery is OK, have you tried pressing the lock (or maybe unlock?) button half a dozen times quickly to get the locking working, although this should not affect the immobiliser which is a separate system.

Pressing the fob 4 times would normally get the central locking working again.
How sure are you the battery is still good?
