There is. The dealers have a small hand held computer that pairs the chip in the key/fob and the chip in the ignition lock. Once they are paired, the ECU recognises them both as belonging to the vehicle and releases power to the ignition system. It is the anti-theft system and immobiliser.

Or if you mean a Remote Starter, check the company website or the instruction manual.

Turn key on, but doesnt even click. battery and starter are fine


This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day

My starter won't turn over because of the immobilizer


It could be the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic trans.
On most cars you can disable the alarm by locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch or clutch switch, and the key switch.

99 sable won't start, replaced battery,starter,alternator, but still wont even crank. code reader also said map sensor so it was reset worked for alittle but now nothing


If the car does not have a security system, I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch.
The power from the key switch goes thru the neutral safety switch before getting to the starter.

sounds like a bad wire connection see they hook that up through the same ign wires the key uses to start it i would pull the auto start module and check for bad conn and on the key not starting it could be a couple of things 1 as explained before bad conn 2 a bad ign switch at the keyswitch

I have a 97 528i BMW recently Ive been having problems starting it . When I turn the key it will try to start but wont actually turn over. I have a new battery so Im thinkin its the starter maybe??


It is most likely the immobiliser rather than starter if it does try to start, is it automatic or manual gearbox? If automatic, than try to take the negative cable of the battery and leave for 15-20 minutes without connection, than switch lights on before reconnecting the negative, this resets the computer so it might help. If it is manual, try a push start if the car starts and runs than it is the starter problem, if not than it will be immobiliser problem.

94 vw jetta would not start


94 Jettas have a anti-theft kill switch. It can mimik the starter or alternator. Lock all the doors with them closed, then unlock the drivers side with the key. Wait about two min then try cranking it. Should start up instantly, if not reset the computer.
