    Immobiliser fuse missing?

    Hi all Documentation says fuse 28 is for the immobiliser, but my fuse box doesn’t have the fuse, nor even the connections for the fuse to be clamped in. Any thought why this would be? - I don’t have an immobiliser?! But I have the light alongside the handbrake. Thanks

    I've seen a few threads like this now so apologies if I'm repeating what others have already posted, but I cant seem to find a solution and they don't 100% relate to the issue I'm currently having.
