Wwhat does it mean..immobilzer appeared in xc90 Volvo 2004

The immobliser battery (re-chargable Li-Ion) has begun to leak onto the immobilser board causing a short and inoperation of the immobilser function. It's located in the right wheel well behind the plastic liner. You can replace the battery yourself with a 3.6V 210mA phone battery number 303. Some soldering is required to replace the battery. Otherwise visit dealer to replace the immobilser board probably worth hundreds of dollars.

Hi my immobilser/fob is not working leaving me unable to start my truck, any ideas on how to start it bypassing the immobilser???

Unfortunately there is no way to bypass the immobilizer feature, the key you are using is probably not matched to the system, if all keys are lost you should contact the Toyota dealer there is a way to program your existing key or a new key to the system, doing this requires a diagnostic scantool.
