So my MR2 has a Cobra CAT 1 fitted.
Only one fob has been in use, and yesterday it decided it no longer wants to work (battery is fine).
I have a touch key somewhere - lost in house move - and the PIN with fitting certificate, but as I can’t find the touch key, the fobs aren’t playing ball and I’m not the biggest fan of the system to begin with (shit fobs), I am leaning towards unlocking the car with the key, removing and then destroying the siren and having a company come out and fit a Toad or something.
The car is at the front of my drive at present, and ideally I need to move it today, or I will no doubt end up blocked in by next door, if I park behind the Toyota.
What would you do? I favour wrapping the siren in rags and dropping it into a bucket of water. The car will obviously still be immobilised, so I will have to push it up the drive, out of the way.
Also, I can’t see there being much demand for aftermarket CAT 1 fitting in 2019. The places I knew of around here have gone, although I think Autosounds in Newcastle still operates in some capacity.
Has anyone had a CAT 1 fitted in the last few years? I sway towards something like a Toad, but I dunno, these days?
