The car cranks but wont fire up.Its the problem, related to immobilizer, the key is not getting detected.Either the immobilizer battery is weak in the key or the chip in the key is faulty.There is a chip in the key, which communicates with the chip/ sensor in the ignition key lock cylinder.If the immobilizer chip is not getting detected by the ignition lock cylinder chip, then this will not let the car to start.---------
The immobilizer chip needs to be replaced or the immobilizer needs to be scanned.-----------
This procedure has helped in some cases for the same exact problem:---
Try this before getting the immobilizer checked by the dealer to replace chip and reprogram it with your cars ignition key lock cylinder:---
The procedure is as follows:---
Try leaving the key in the ignition with all the dash lights on for 20 minutes, and then trying to start engine again.
If your engine starts and car runs, then problem solved, other wise the immobilizer will be scanned and checked by the tool at dealer.Or an independent who can perform this task.Many local autoparts store have this immobilizer scan tool , to confirm the problem.If error detected, they will replace the chip in the immobilizer key and re-program it.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
