You need to "pair" the key with the immobilser receiver, located around the ignition switch.The original key is "paired" to the one in the car, and can be programed, but you need the master key to do so. I would suggest trying to get a key and switch assembly from a breakers or salvag
I hope this helps.e yard that is a pair.

Immobiliser bypass


The motor can be replaced without touching the immobilizer system. There may be no problem with the immobilizer system as it only turns off power to the fuel pump or ignition spark.
better yet just re-seed the immobilizer ECM with the dealer

Take a small flat head tech screw driver or a small plastic wedge and be very careful. You have to work it out. Look at the new one to see how it secures itself.
