SOURCE: 2006 suzuki swift immobiliser light flashing and car not starting what can i do to fix it?

You may have a bad key chip, try a diffrent key in the ignition, also make sure you do not have magnet strip mini swipe cards on key chain near the ignition. this sounds like the immoboilizer system is active. this system will not allow the coils to spark.
The key would be the first thing to check. do this by using another key.if car still will not start then the key reader may be bad, this is located around the ignition . the last problem could be the module or a broken wire.The best way to check this would be with a scan tool. there will be codes stored in the anti or body module. the codes will tell you where the failure is and with some testing the problem can be found. the scan tool can help by reading the values and readings. it can tell you if the key chip is read and if the module accepts it. i think if the spare key does not start the car then it will be cheaper to have a shop diagnose the problem. this will help you from just putting parts in. also this anti theft system needs programing when certain parts are replaced.
hope this is helpful, good day

My Vauxhall Meriva wont start garage cant find problem done full service someone says it could be my key.

Yes it certainly could be an immobiliser problem, though not necessarily the key.
If the spare key doesn't work the problem will need diagnosing with diagnostic equipment and possibly recoding after any repairs or replacements.

If the garage where you took the car has a few decent mechanics they should have traced the fault back to a dead engine management ECU, which of course stays dead until the immobiliser is disarmed by using the correctly coded key.
No special equipment is needed to carry out sufficient checks to suspect an immobiliser problem and then report the fact to the owner.

If they haven't done at least that much it is possible they haven't been very competent at carrying out the checks for other non-start possibilities with the result I would have no confidence in them and a large question mark still hangs over the cause of the no start when it should be only a small question mark.

You will need the old key. If you have it tape it to the new barrel each key has a chip to tell imobeliser its correct the old key taped on the barrel is the only way

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

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.
