The immobilizer is programmed to the key and reader, contact the dealership and have them reprogram it for you.

SOURCE: broken ignition barrel ford laser 1989 model


this is the procedure to remove the ignition barrel:

Remove the steering column surround and you should see a black round thing on the left hand side, this is the ignition switch. Remove this and you will see there is one screw holding the ignition barrel on, remove and you then need to insert your key and turn it to the ACC position. you should now be able to withdraw the barrel using the key but take care not to snap the key off in the barrel.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution as fixya.

Waiting to get a new ignition for 96 Acura rl will it start up or will I have to get it programmed to the car

if you have the new ignition key barrel rekeyed to suit the existing key before fitting there will not be a problem as the existing key will work the immobiliser ( talk with a locksmith for that job)
if you get new keys then it will have to be reprogrammed to suit the car immobiliser system ( vehicle service centre)

My car wont start lost my key so got an ignition barrel and key out of a different car wat do i need to do? plz if anyone can help plz

Your car is probably fitted with an immobiliser , you need to have the original key in the car when you start it or replace the immobiliser module and key with a programmed chip to match that immobiliser , otherwise go to the dealer with VIN number and they will replace the key (not cheap usually) the trick is the immobiliser chip in the key must match the one in the car , it's a security feature .

Immobiliser faults

I hope that you still have the old key.
all you have to do is that: open up the old key/remote and look inside it for a small black rectangle piece, this is the immobilizer chip.
remove it carefully don't brake it, and place it inside the new key/remote, put a little glue on it

good luck

Computer shut down fuel system reset

Hi, Sounds like the immobiliser isn't de-activating. The system will prime when the ignition is turned on and the car will start but then the immobiliser will cut the fuel after 2-3 seconds. Are there any warning lights or led lights staying on. If you have a spare key and haven't tried it then start there first. If you do and neither key works then it could be a number of things including the pick up ring around the ignition barrel but you would need to get the car checked out proffesionally before you start replacing parts. Good luck, Jon.

This car has a chip key, you can't just put any old key in it it must be programmed to not turn on the security system and disable starting, which is what you have now, the system has locked you out.

Unfortunately the ignition barrel has been replaced with a new key,which has not been adapted to the immobiliser.The three core wire is from the reader coil which is supposed to fit around the ignition barrel.Obviously the key head was taped in the right position for the reader coil to read the key chip.Now the immobiliser is doing its job and cutting the ECU to stop it from running.It will take persiverance to find the right position to tape key back to coil for engine to run.Then your local VW Commercial dealership can readapt your key.
