Therse more to it than simple disconnect fix but you can cut it out.All the wires are color coded so can cut enough of the immobilisers black wires to join the factory ones that were cut back together again.How sure are you that it is the immobiliser?Open yours up and see if yours has a fuse in it some of them do

    The original wires under the dash are color coded If you pull the tape off the joins from the imobiliser to the factory wires you will see they have been soldered to a particular cut the nessecary black wires from the immobiliser long enough to join the colored factory ones back together without the need to resolder it.All your doing is joining the wires back to the way they were before the immobiliser was fitted.

i've had similar problems with a hyundai coupe , you have'nt mentioned your vehicle , the problem with the coupe was the drivers door lock , as a tempory solution i removed the central locking fuse until could get the lock mechanism changed for the customer, removing the fuse means you will have to lock/unlock vehicle with the key in the door lock

Jus changed thermostat and radiator on my 04 kia rio now wont start...?

Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after you put all the coolant in?
Some cars may not start, because the computer thinks there's no coolant in the engine.
Hope this helps.

I have a95firebird t a turn the key nothing happends no gauges work on the dash nothing lights up but it has a good battery

Make sure the battery terminals are clean! I can't believe GM still won't get off it with this design.No other company has changed to this design,and with good reason.They make jumper cables impossible,and how can you see the corrosion when it happens? Remove the 5/16 battery bolts (black first),and look at the terminal inside the boot.

Nothing happens when i turn the key

Hey the 80s celica's had a TSB problem concerning the starting of the cars, so it is a factory wiring problem, I have a 1988 celica and all I did was bypass the ignition with a high amp switch straight to the starter and to + on the battery, hope this helps.
