i been having some problems with starting the car think its the ford fiesta Immobiliser so i guess i am thinking of some options ?
ok the clock led is doing funny things when i do get the car working maybe 3 or 4 times taking the key out it stays on full but sort of dims i am going to take a video of it to show you also can this unit be disconnected as a friend had a ford granada and all he did was take a relay out and put some mini spade connects to bridge..

also this problem is with all keys some are new and some are old also red key is the same..

Yeah, the bit around the barrel is the receiver for the pats system. Easiest thing to check is that it is plugged in OK.
If it is then pats is a nightmare to diagnose.
All cabling is brown, box is intricately wired into the loom.

If the red key is working might be worth tying to re programming a black key to the system and see if that helps.

Does the alarm chirp at all when it doesn't start?

might sound stupid but if you have more than 1 key on the ring then the pats is trying to recieve more than 1 signal just try using 1 key
