If you have an automatic transmission, grab the shifter lever and press the thumb release button three times. This will tell the vehicle to let go of the key.

Just happened to me in a 2006 VW Passat 2.0T - Automatic. You simply need to depress the brake and then press the button on the shift lever 3 times. You will then hear the key being released and you can pull it out.

First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

Hi i tried to check my fuses and suddenly my immobilser is no longer deactivating with my remote key


you have removed the fuse that controls the power to the immobilizer( same result as removing the battery)
use a scan tool to reset the ECM and that will reset the immobilizer

Cant get and xtra key to progtam turns car on but wont start it


if the vehicle has a factory immobilizer the original key has a transducer in the base of it that activates & deactivates the immobilizer when it is put in or pulled out of the ignition switch, if the key that you are trying to use has a transender in it you may have to takef it to a buick dealer to get it coded,if it has,'t got a transducer it will never start the vehicle.....hope this helps....cheers

Immobilizer light


When you turn the key in the ignition, the ECU will ask the immobilizer if it can start thecar. If the signal is not sending then immobilizer error will show.There is a way to deactivate the immobilizer. The procedure is as follows:-- To deactivate the immobiliser just turn the ignition 3 times on and off and the immobiliser will deactivate .But if still the same problem then this could be the immobiliser read coil around the ignition switch or its a flat battery problem. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Bmw e36 immobilised, iginition lights come on, but the starter wont turn over. how do i start the car to get it to a garage, i dont wont to pay the £70 for recovery truck


BMW E36 immobilizer Hope the following will help. Had similar problems. The transmitter buttons on keys is for central locking and alarm. Inside the key at the front there is a small electronic/magnetic chip that looks like a block. About 8mm long, 2mm deep and 4mm wide, not connected to any pc board. This is the immobilizer. It must match the receiver that is located behind the ignition switch. If it is loose and too far away from the receiver it won?t deactivate it. If you made a spare key it will switch on electrics but won?t start the car. If you don?t have an immobilizer chip any alarm shop will be able to program a new chip or install a new pair for your keys. There is a way to disable the immobilizer but rather have it fix and protect your car. I read an article somewhere (perhaps bmw e36 blog) of people removing this immobilizer. Good luck
