No. It should not flash. This means that something is wrong that could be very serious. You should take to Autozone and have them put it on their scanner right away. It will not cost anything to have the diagnostic ran. Could be something minor. But usually when the light is flashing, then it is something that needs your attention.

    It will flash until you start it with a different key. If you have a different key then you can try that. Or you will have to have it towed to a shop to have the security system checked out.

Corsa utility 1.4 failing to start and it is not giving a spark. it flashes the spanner light about 5 second after turning the key on please tell me what is the problem


Hello Sibusiso,

(From the 2009 Corsa Owners Manual)

Your Immobilizer system checks whether the engine is allowed to start with the key being used. If the transponder in the key is recognised, the engine can be started.

The electronic immobiliser activates itself automatically after the key has been removed from the ignition switch. If control indicator "spanner light" flashes when the ignition is on, there is a fault in the system; the engine cannot be started.

Switch off the ignition and then repeat the start attempt.
If the control indicator continues flashing, attempt to start the engine using the spare key and seek the assistance of a workshop.

See 2009 Owners Manual at the link below.

Why does engine immobilizer theft deterrent system indicator light flash constantly when truck is off and stays on when truck is locked and not in use?


The light doesn't flash; it blinks. The purpose is to convince a potential thief that it would not be wise to rip your ride.

03 Santa Fe car sometimes won't start but only when immobilizer light stays on will start after a while has power just wount start


Yes. Immobilizer lamps that stay on or continue flashing indicate the vehicles immobilizer has not recognized a valid key. Depending on the system, the vehicle may start with a correct rotation but invalid key, or it may not crank. Your problem us most likely a defective key, however the immobilizer antenna could also be weak and not properly picking up the key. Both problems will require a dealer or technician or locksmith with special tools to learn new keys to your immobilizer.

Sign of car with key warning light on dash


Here is a fix >

Security and Immobilizer System Indicator Symbols Symbols & Tell-tales
engine_immobilizer.gifsecurity_indicator_symbol.gifThese are Security and/or Immobilizer System Indicator symbols used by manufacturers. One of these symbols lights momentarily to indicate that the ignition switch is locked and will need the proper transponder-equipped key to re-start. The vehicle is immobilized otherwise. Green symbols will flash when the vehicle is immobilized.
lock.gifIf the symbol is visible when the vehicle is on, it indicates a malfunction in the security system. If the engine does not start with the correct key, and the security indicator remains on, the system may have a malfunction. You will need to contact your dealer in either case.
Keep the Symbol meanings with you!

Immobilizer active reset on 2006 volkswagon passat


First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.
