I’ve used 20103 on the Facelift with no issues.

Try closing the module then opening it back up and putting the code back in.

I've tried turning the whole thing off , closing down the vcds  and starting again, just don't see how it now needs a security code!!

How many times have you inputted a wrong security code or one it didn’t like ?
Modules can ‘lock’ you out for a period after too many code attempts.

Dazie00: Of course anything is possible, but the screens in your first post look like a classic case of attempting to enter an incorrect security code (perhaps mis-typing the number 20103).

 

As veneeringman has said - control modules get cranky if the wrong security code is entered -they can lock-out for a period of time (the lock-out time varies, but around 10 minutes is my rule-of-thumb).  It's important to leave your ignition turned-on during this period because the lock-out time is measured with the ignition turned-on!

 

My experience has been that the error message for lock-out is not always evocative of what's happening. But there is a way of checking if the module has gone into lock-out as follows:

  1. Open the control module @ address hex03
  2. Select Adv. Meas. Values
  3. Select Security Access: Number of invalid keys
  4. If the number reaches 3 - the module will no longer accept any further attempts to enter a security code until the time-out period has lapsed (remember, the ignition must be turned-on for the lock-out period)
  5. You will know when the time-out period has reset because the number in this measuring value will reset to 0
