No, the immobilized does not prevent key removal. You just have to ensure you are turning it all the way off, in park, with the brake on, and the steering lock is not hung up by something like wheels on the curb.
Hi try operating with the spare remote to lock & unlock the doors & try the spare key to start may be the immobilizer playing up if it starts with the spare key it could be the transponder in the key itself wanting re programing
hope this helps
if you use a regular key it will turn the ignition on, it will engage the starter motor & turn the engine over but if the vehicle has an engine immobilizer it will not start.....hope this helps......cheers.
MAKE SURE YOU USING THE RIGHT KEYS. TRY ANOTHER IGNITION KEY.PLACE KEY IN THE SWITCH. TURN IGNITION SWITCH TO ON POSITION UNTIL IMMOBILIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FOR 2 TO 3 SECONDS. IF IMMOBILIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FOR 2 TO 3 SECONDS THEN FLASHES RAPIDLY.KEY CODE NOT RECOGNIZED.REMOVE KEY AND TRY AGAIN. IF ALL FAILS TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP THEY HAVE TO USE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO FIX CAR.PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE IGNITION SWITCH,BCM,FAULT IN THE ECM OR IMMOBILIZER CODE INCORRECT.
Is the check engine light on in the vehicle? Does the engine start up right away if you apply the gas
It sounds like you either have a clogged air filter, a dirty throttle body, or a fuel system problem.t sounds like you either have a clogged air filter, a dirty throttle body, or a fuel system problem. If it is cranking at a good speed, then problem has to be with the ignition (spark) and/or fuel-air.
Actual spark plug problems usually manifest in rough idle and loss of power (typically one plug at a time goes bad). Fuel problem occurs when injectors get clogged or when you are out of gas. The air problem is typically due to some sensor causing the ecu to mess up the air ratio.
For diagnosis, I would recommend a visit to the dealer. It is lot better /cheaper to drive it to the dealer on its own power. It seems like "cold" start problem. Has it ever given you problem when the engine is hot?
Finally, check the theft or immobilizer systems, anti-theft kills the spark. You can try removing all other
keys/magnets from your key ring (to avoid interference) or try starting
with the spare key (master/valet both should work).
