How can I disable the immobliser on my 1.5 106 diesel

You can't bypass the immobilizer as it is there to stop you doing what you are trying to do.

you can reset it yourself

How to Re-Pair Immobillizer Chips in Vehicle Ignition Systems
If you disconnect your battery, or your battery becomes completely depleted after storage, your immobilizer system will need re-pairing. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. When these are paired and registered with the Engine Control Module (ECM), power is released to the ignition system and your vehicle will start.

To re-pair the system

Disconnect the battery, both terminals.
Leave vehicle for at least 2 hours.
Hold terminals together for 5 minutes.
Connect the POSITIVE lead.
Connect the NEGATIVE lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

Your vehicle should now start. If there is still a problem, you may have another fault in the ignition, or you may need a dealership to to check the ECM and chip pairing.

How do i reset the anti theft system after i had already switched the ignition

The ignition key contains a coded transponder chip which is read via an antenna around or close to the ignition/steering lock and the code in the key must match the code in the car's immobiliser memory in order to start the car.

As the key came from a different car it will need recoding. Sometimes the chip is moulded in plastic and sometimes it is possible to take the key apart - in that case you should be able to fit the chip (like a grain of rice) to your new key.

If you are lucky placing the original key close to the new key while trying to start might just make it work.
Good luck!

I've lost my key's and instead of calling a locksmith i bought a new ignition and the keys dont have a chip trying to figure the right size chip it needs

Ive seen this happen before, if its got a chip in it, you have 15 different possibilities. You have to put an ohm meter on the old key to figure out what you have. Sucks you don't have the original key. Best bet, bypass the whole system. Check out this link. You'll find what your looking for.

take the chip out of the old key and fit it into the new key if possible ,if not then tape old key behind the shroud next to transponder and it will work till you can get the new keys programmed in the dealer ,now on some of these older models but dont quote me ,if you put the new key in the ignition and open and close the doorlock with the original key it will programme the new key but this may only be on europeon models alicantecoli_8.png

Hi, my battery went flat in my 1990 300zx, i have charged it and put it back in but now my immobiliser won't turn off. I noticed a thin red wire loose near battery but as my brother took battery out for me...

To reset and re-pair the chips in the key and the chip in the ignition lock, your immobilizer you need to do this.

First connect that red wire, or ask your brother. If it is red, it should be connected. It is more likely to be an accessory added at a later date unless it has a proper connector on it.

First you need to fully discharge the system. Disconnect the battery for 2 hours. Hold the negative and positive together for 5 minutes. PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not switched on. Connect the positive of the battery, then connect the negative in one clean hit. Wait 15 minutes for everything to reset.

When I put my key in the ignition it will not turn?? how do i change the ignition

not sure about this one but their isnt a hole to release the barrel ,also dont think the parts are sold seperatly,you will have to renew the whole steering lock assembly complete and cut the old one off with a mini grinder ,dont forget to remove the coil mechanism around the lock ,its the aerial for the chipped key and dont forget to take the chip out of the key and put it in the new key .or just tape the key behind the plastic covers aroiund the aerial so car will start .
