Default Replacement bsi virginised?

After buying what was described as a virginised bsi on ebay i went about programming it to my car via my lexia.

I first checked to see if there was any vin number stored on the bsi and there was.
Am i right in thinking if this was truly virginised then no previous vin should show here?
I continued and changed the vin to suit my car and then attempted to input my 4digit transponder code to get my keys linked but i kept getting a message saying incorrect code.
I then decided to try starting the car and it started no problem. Further checking through menus and i found out that the bsi seems to have had its immobiliser bypassed. One of the menus said something along the lines of bsi cannot be locked which i presume means immobilsed?

Am i right in thinking this is not a virginised unit but one that has simply had the immobiliser bypassed?

The central locking doesnt work by the button on the key (no surprise since it wont accept transponder code) but central locking also doesnt work by turning the key in the door, if i can get the locking to work by turning the key in the door id be happy enough but im wondering if the central locking is not working because of the de-immobilised bsi or is it just something i need to change in the bsi configuration settings?

You CANNOT change the stored vin in the BSI and you need the 4 digit code for THAT vin not your own i hope you noted the original vin before changing it

I did note it yes, however i was under the impression when it is virginised there should be no stored vin? Is this wrong?

Depends how they define virgin if it has a vin then you need the pin for that vin to code it BUT your remote would only ever work with your original vin/chip/bsi combo

Whatever you do you will not get the remote to work except with the BSI it was originally coded to.

To code your keys to new BSI you need a virgin chip in each key but that then looses remote functions it gets very confusing very quickly thats why most people just swap whole ecu set.

Thanks for the info, do you know whether i can get the central locking working from turning the key in the door? Is that likely to be a setting that needs changed in the configuration?

Some cars the central locking only works in passenger door as this is the drivers in left hand drive cars and the cars are european

The BSI will be configured as LHD as default anyway

Thanks again for the info reliable406.
Took a look at the bsi configuration again and it is configured already for RHD.

Anyway, messed about lovking and unlocking the door with the key and the central locking has seemed to have woken up and started working again. That’s good enough for me. Don’t really care about the key buttons not working.

You could try this, put the key in the ignition and turn to the first position, hold down the lock button on the key for 10 seconds, then remove the key and try the buttons, it may just work.

Yeh... again making me think the only thing done to the bsi was the immobiliser removed.
Car is starting fine though so at least that is something
