Question about Cars & Trucks
My problem is that the car is not starting any more. The security light is not flashing; it is off. It should be flashing to indicate that the immobilizer system is activated. When the key is turned and the ignition is ON, the security light is flashing - strong light. Turning the key further on to START does not start the engine. According to the alternative procedure for deactivating the immobilizer, the key shall in short be turned on for ignition five time. Hereinafter one should wait for a number of flashes on the security light. The problem is that the security light is not flashing at all. Have any experienced a similar problem? Any tips & tricks is welcome. Thank you. Kind regards, Bjarne Wiboe

Fcuk I got same problem with my Mazda 3 year 2004. Noone can help me at all !!! Even in Mazda they have no idea where is problem. For me it is at the moment only in cold weather. I cannot get throught immobilizer. After few turns it works, but not always (only when its bit warmer). I found out that if it is warmer, and I turn on ventilation for a while after it will let me go! Immobilizer starts flashing ... after few more minutes and turning key few times it will let me go !!! Please write me to email@example.com if you will know updates... I am desperate , cannot use my car in winter at all or cold weather. In summer works fine

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

disconnect the neg battery terminal for 30 sec leave drivers door open, reconnect and start your car, if the alarm turns on after conecting battery use your key in the drivers door and unlock
