Hi Sohan and Admin,
I have a similar issue with immobilizer not working specially on rainy days and the yellow color key indicator do not show in the dash board lights. Can you please share the wiring diagrams ?
About the fuse 9 you talked about earlier in the fuse box under steering wheel, is a 5 A fuse in my car. How ever temperatures here in Sri Lanka don't go below 20 C. I think the issue is in CPH after checking this tread but have no idea how to diagnose in. Any help mostly welcome.

Hi

It may be that some rain penetrates the car and drips on the CPH. The wiring diagram won't help. The CPH is located behind the glove box. You should detach the glove box, and see if the CPH gets wet. To detach the glove box open the lid and remove all screws. One screw is covered with that black cloth that is adhered to the glove box. Pull it and it will come out than remove the screw. The CPH is a black box on the left side. Two connectors are hooked onto it, unplug the connectors and detach the CPH and check if it comes wet.

Hope that helps
