1997 Kia Sportage Immobiliser Problems

It seems Sportages of a certain age are starting to fall apart. I have the same problem as the others right now; Immobiliser fob working, red lights coming on when buttons are pressed, red light on dash blinking as normal but the signal is not deactivating the immobiliser.

I'm just waiting for my code from Kia so that I can use the gas pedal to press in the code to deactivate the immobiliser but can someone go through the exact process?

Can someone also tell me exactly what Kia would do about this problem? Will they want to completely replace the Immobiliser Central Unit? Can they reprogram?

Cheers.

This is a common problem with the kia sportage I have been through three new units, and I am currently tryin to work out how to bypass the texton unit and install a switch in it's place the problem with the code is it takes a few minutes to start the car each time and if the car is stalled at the traffic lights it takes a while to re enter th code kia really needs to allow it's supporters more technical support as currently there is none

It is a 1997 sportage and it is duel fuel but when i pop it over to fuel it runs really rough like it is coughy and spluterry and when it is on idle it stalls but it dosent die when the revs are kept up


Many Kia Sportages of this model year have this problem. The first thing is to clean the throttle postion sensor. If that doesn't remedy then the MAF (mass air flow) sensor will need to be replace. This controls the fuel air mixture. Thanks for using Fixya.
