Immobiliser appears to have immobilised the vehicle. Needs sorting out, and sorted out on a tight budget, but don't know where to begin. Can I just bypass the immobiliser somehow?

The short answer is no you cannot easily bypass the immobiliser. This is done to prevent theft so they don' make it easy to do. You are better to try and work out why the immobiliser has operated and resolve this. There are several reasons why this might have occurred so it is no practical to cover everything here. You really need to get some specialist help.

I have a 1996 2.0 litre galaxy petrol.I turn the ignition switch,car starts but cuts out after two seconds.The immobiliser light on the drivers door comes on when I start the car.Cental locking works...

Hi Bernie
Classic symptoms of transponder fault. Effectively the car is not recognising your key. Try another key if yoiu have one. If same with both keys, then need to check transponder ring and wiring.No bypass I'm afraid....even if there was, could not post due to insurance implications.

Diesel engine wont start will turn over problem has been narrowed down to immobilizer, is it possible to bypass immobilizer in diesel injector pump?

i had this problem and again it was narrowed down to the immobiliser. however it wasnt exactly the immobiliser it was the immobiliser coil. it sits around the key slot and it is the radio part that check the chip inside the key. got mine replaced and it starts first time every time now. it cost £35 to replace.
