You cannot by pass an immobiliser, that is its job. its not just fuel it cuts out but fuel pump and injectors too.
Have you tried your spare key?
If no spare, i would suggest you ring your local auto locksmith who will get you sorted in about 30min.
cheers

SOURCE: Truck Won't Start At All

before replacing the starter get a volt meter and test the voltage coming out of the voltage regulator which the power comes from the battery to the regulator down to the starter also make sure all wires on the starter are clean and what I mean is from rust because I had an f150 that did the same thing

2003 Ford Focus Engine won't turn over


Try crossing the starter wires, it should turn over. Is key ok, maybe its not coded? Also check connectors on starter . Try disconnecting battery for 30 mins, might reset electrics.

Hi all,I have a Ford focus 2004 tdci 1.8 and the immobiliser intermittently won't turn off,I've tried both keys and its still won't start.kind regards Dean


Ford products are sensitive to changes in Battery voltage. The system views low Voltage as an attempted theft and makes the Alarm go off.

Remove the Battery, return it with a full charge or new Battery. Some other symptoms would be slow cranking or clicking like a dead battery. The Antitheft reduces starter Voltage to around 7 Volts making starting nearly impossible.

Please rate my info. If all else fails, the Identity in the car memory may no longer match the identity on the car keys. You would need to have a Dealer rematch the keys to the car.
