Have you fully charged the battery? If it's still sluggish turning over with a charged battery and good earths then it most likely needs a battery.

When you changed the alternator was everything plugged back in correctly?

check he has put the smaller white wire onto the alternator positive terminal not the exiter terminal as this is the supply to the engine/ecu loom

It's obscured by the header tank on the HDi I think, that's easily lifted out of the way though.

All the earths are fine, the code is reading system voltage. I've got an auto electrical place to come out on Wednesday and take a look, we have the code ready so they shouldn't have to charge me silly money just to see what the code is

All sorted, I had an auto electrician look at it and he didn't even charge me for telling me what was wrong with it. He said the BSI has failed and it needs replacing, however the ecu and barrel + key needs to be changed as they're paired with a security code. Had a look around and found everything I need for 70 quid all in, remapped ecu too so it's all sorted and running great again. Such a simple issue and a cheap fix for the hassle it has caused.

usually the way..

I had a loose earth, giving weak starting and intermittent "dead" battery (all the lights were on and sorted it was just a bad connection and not able to give enough juice to turn it over so it looked like a dead battery and/or starter... replaced both, found out that the bolt was loose on the box earth on the gearbox...

How did I know you'd pick up on that... lol

Also the barrel didn't need to be changed, or the pickup ring, just swap the chip from new fob to old one.

Maybe not called BSI, but certainly a unit for dealing with immobiliser and RF locking... I'd hazard that if it died, it wouldn't start anymore!

Steve from HDI tuning confirmed that it is also the BSI..... I think I'll go with what the 306 mapping professional says Wink also it's worked so there's also that

its just an alarm & cl control unit.

with your logic the 5 amp fuse is a bsI as thatll stop it starting too.

When you connect to it with PP2k it calls it a Texton BSI iirc? Or maybe CPH - either way, no need to be ultra pedantic, everybody knows it as a BSI.
