There's no check engine light on the dashboard and according to Rhinomans page it means the ecu is dead.

Have you checked that the main relay is feeding power to ecu and immobilizer, it's located under the dashboard between steering column and inner wing.

Update. I've checked the relay and other connections and all are ok. After looking at the manuals on Rhinomans portal it seems as the ICM, ECM and key transponder are not communicating with each other. This happened 8 years ago and I had to tow it to the main dealer to get it recoded. I was thinking of buying the Tech2 diagnostic equipment as it will not be much more (I don't think). Has anyone used this tester before and does it connect to the terminals by the headlight?
