Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara
Replaced the keys with a key cut to the original specification. Tried both Chipped versions and unchipped.
The Ignition light comes on and the starter motor operates turning the engine over. It will not start, so suspect that a immobiliser is present.
I have a spark on the leads, so suspect the petrol pump is isolated.
Which relay operates the petrol pump so I can give it a supply and get the car running.
Or am i barking up the wrong tree?
Your help would be v much appreciated. Dev n Jan. North Devon England.
You need to have the car programmed to recognize the signal from the new keys. If not your ignition will not fire, matter of fact nothing will happen except your instrument guages will display. This is an anti theft feature built into most all modern cars. Some lock smiths will have the equipment to do this. You will have to call around to find one that has the ability to reprogram for new keys, that is if you have cut the correct "chipped key" for your car. If not you will have to go through a dealership.

The key itself is unique to that serial no, so no duplicates will work .Contact the dealership with the key no. (imprinted on the key )for a key with immobiliser.
i hope this solves your problem.
