If the theft system is factory, there may be a disarm switch on LF door lock cylinder. Cycling the key to lock and unlock a couple times should disarm.

I've got a Mitsubishi outlander 04plate and I've lost the imobiliser fob but I still have the key. How do I remove it from my car so I can start it?

your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

Warning message: ''remote control battery low''

hi, this message is warning you that the battery in the key fob is going flat if this battery goes totally flat you wont be able to start your car as its this signal from the key fob that turns the imobiliser off so with out this fob your car wont start so its best you get the battery changed sooner rather than later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2003 GMC Sierra died while driving down the highway

hi, the problem you are having sounds like an imobilser problem does your key have a fob that unlocks the doors etc check this is working if it is then the problem could be with the key itself as they are programmed so that if somebody used a different key in the ignition it wouldnt allow the car to start.
The only way of knowing for sure is by taking it to a main dealer because the imobilser problems wont show up on a diagnostics machine the main dealer will be able to test the key or fob for you they should test it for free but if it needs replacing then you will have to pay for this unless its a common fault if it is common problem with that make and model they will replace this for free.

im sorry their is no easy fix for this problem but it is more than likely your imobiliser if it was say something like starter motor your car wouldnt have cut off whilst running so it points to an imobiliser problem so get this checked.

Let me know how you get on or if you require further assistance ok

Problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser

You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.
