  • Ok for those of you still interested, this afternoon I stripped down the drivers door latch to check if there was any fault and low and behold there is a small pivot pin and an equally small spring lying in the bottom of the latch . I took a couple of pictures but I'm garbage at posting pictures. The normal source for these is MGF n TF bitz but alas they are out of them at the moment and Rimmers must be gold plating the ones they have as they are .... £150 !
    Has any one repaired one of these

  • The TF's 5as scu was returned from Paul Brown ( Technozen ) yesterday and refitted it to the car . The problem for those who have been following this saga was that the immobilizer was not recognising either of the fobs and after consulting with Paul he suggested that the receiver in the scu had failed which is not a common fault with the Lucas 5as system . Paul's expertise has fixed the fault as the car now locks and unlocks and also starts up . This car still has one remaining fault in that the door lock in the handle will still not operate the lock manually in either direction . I have removed both the lock barrel and the locking motor latch and checked them for damage and wear and can see nothing wrong . It is a bit difficult to sort this problem due to the car ( not mine ) is a few miles away so it's not as though I can keep popping out and doing a bit when I feel like it .
    Any ideas guys , as always would be appreciated .

  • Hi David. I have only had one fob at any one time while trying to sort this out . Today I went and did the same checks as I did on Monday. Re checked all the fuses both inside the car and under the bonnet and then tried to re educate the fobs using Pscan . Nothing has changed so I bit the bullet and removed the scu and sent it along with the fobs for Paul Brown to work his magic . My only area of concern is that although I have managed to release both door locks , the door handle lock will not fully turn in either direction and I have checked the lock is not siezed up it is as though the latch mechanism or the rods that go to the lock is jammed in some way. All I can hope is when the scu comes back and is plugged in it will cycle the lock back to neutral.

  • The super locking on 5as ( Lucas square fob ) and Pektron ( Oval fob ) cars differs in that to operate super locking on Lucas cars you have to double press the lock button . On Pektron cars it super locks with one press. I didn't know this until I checked my Pektron TF yesterday. The Key being changed on the faulty TF was disproved as the owners hand book gives the key code and the tag is still on one of the key rings .
