Hello! 2 weeks 4 days ago #206345

Hi everyone,

Just joined with my 2004 TF (Emily) that I've owned for a couple of weeks. London based.

Some old posts here have already helped me out of a couple of tight spots, so I'm pretty happy to be in a community around these cars.

Hi Andy. Welcome. Have you had to do much to your TF so far ?
I like the white alloys, did you do that?

The previous owner looked after it quite well - they painted the alloys, I quite like them.

I've done a bit of tinkering, but nothing too major, the throttle was a bit sticky so I spend a little while to oil that and its much better now. I've spend most of my time charging the battery - my own fault, I've got out of the habit with modern cars of remembering to turn the light off when you get out. But I did find that the "lights on" buzzer seems to of failed, I have a replacement MFU sat on the kitchen table that I'll switch over when I have some time.

My next thing, I think is to get a second key. It only came with one (Pektron) and Timspson wanted £249 to make one! So I think I'm about to start my pscan adventure. I work in tech, so I'm kind of up for the idea of plugging a laptop into the car and doing it myself.

A +1 for the wheels & a thumbs up for the potential technical knowledge, there are a number of older gezzers on here who haven’t advanced much from a four pack of HP11s & a 6.3v bulb.
I’ve moved on to LEDs & a lipo battery.
Interesting both types of battery will burst, the HP11 do it slowly, a lipo failure is much more impressive & the smoke & stink are in a league of there own, especially when in a confined space, let’s say my workshop for example.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

The pscan is a great bit of kit but I don't think it can program a Pektron remote. The man for that job is www.technozen-electronics.co.uk and he is only down in Brighton if you fancy a run to the coast.

Based on North London.

Thanks for the tip on key programming - Brighton isn't a bad run from here.

Pscan if fully capable of programming Pektron remote to the car. It is capable to program some Pektron remotes which T4 cannot.

However what you need is completely new Pektron remote with its 22-digit barcode which is essential for programming.

The previous owner looked after it quite well - they painted the alloys, I quite like them.

What puzzles me is that you are mentioning MFU. I hope that is just a choice of words and that you have spare BCU unit on the table, since Pektron cars does not have MFU unit at all. MFU unit is replaced with BCU.

However, since "lights on" buzzer is part of BCU now which also hold your Pektron remote info it might be worth to use service of above mentioned Technozen.
