#1187 of 1371 Engine immobiliser problems
Apr 06, 2009 (2:12 am)
I have a 1997 Daewoo Nubira wagon with an 2XR engine immobiliser. Intermittantly the immobilser won't turn off even though the cars indicators flash. When the key is turned to on the ignition lights don't come on and the car can't be started. I would like to either remove or disable the immobiliser. Can anyone help with information.
Thanks for your help

Glad to hear from you again. Yes we still have 3 Daewoo leganza's in the family and all 3 are running great. I also am driving now a brand new car which is the 2009 Mazda 6. Still holding on to the opinion that you get the best car for the money, regardless of the make. What is ironic is I settled for this because the Korean car I really wanted was more expensive (Hyundai Genesis) . But I think Mazda did an outstanding job on the new Mazda6.
Last year I drove my trusty Leganza down across the USA all the way from Toronto to Sunny Florida and back the next week. Very nice road trip. Not bad for a Daewoo, and I made it to Florida in 3 tanks full.
If you go back to the historical posts, all my predictions did come true. The most interesting GM small cars today are Daewoo cars being sold worldwide. Including some SUV's (Saturn Vue is the Daewoo S3X). But like you said, I agree GM will have to go bankrupt at some point and come back as GM2. What would be nice is if Daewoo came back as its own brand, if GM does not make it.

needed some settle money or something, and agreed to sell off it's interest in Daewoo back to Daewoo itself, such a thing might be possible. GM will not give up very easily, though, although this is gonna be a tough go for them. It's not lookin' too good.
#1190 of 1371 Transponder inmobilizer wont disarm system
Apr 10, 2009 (12:53 am)
My Daewoo Nubira 2001 has a transponder inmobilizer system. The key for that is a small black plastic 2" stick, of which I have 2 sets, but any of those work. Since today when I turn on the ignition the system is not disarming (light won't stop flashing). I have the override code and sequence to do it. I did it twice, but it is not working. Is there any tip about the oveerriding that I should know or my system or keys are just out of order? What's the problem there and if anyone of you know the answer please help me.

Car runs good, no smoke or high temperture.
No water in oil, clean. no loss of power
Not loosing oil or coolant.
But foamy and thick in the coolant plastic bottle area.
any Ideas? I thought I would drain and flush the radiator and refill.
But concern about condition of the coolant?

Oil in coolant is usually caused by blown head gasket, or leak in transmission cooler part of radiator....neither situation is good.

Can anyone tell me how to get the tires off the lanos? We have tried everything

That's not a clear question.
Do you mean how to jack up the vehicle?
Or do you mean, how to take the lug nuts off?
Or do you mean, how to take the rim/tire off the vehicle?
Or do you mean, how to dismount the tire from the rim?
