STARTS BUT SHUTS OFF IN SECONDS? LOST THE IGNITION KEY AND BROKE THE STEERING LOCK TO START THE ENGINE.
1999 CHEVY BLAZER.
When the ignition switch is turned on, the immobilizer control module sends a challenge signal through the antenna around the ignition switch to the transponder chip in the ignition key. The transponder key responds with an encrypted key code. The immobilizer module then decodes the key code and compares it to the list of registered keys. When the engine is started, the ECM sends a request to the immobilizer module over the data bus to verify the key is correct. If an attempt is made to start the vehicle with an invalid ignition key, the immobilizer module sends a message over the data bus to the instrument cluster to flash the anti-theft indicator lamp. If the ECM does not receive a "valid key" message from the immobilizer module within 2 seconds of engine start up, the ECM will disable the fuel injectors to kill the engine. You'll need to get a new key and get it registered in the immobilizer control module. You'll need a scan tool, the VIN number, the date manufactured and a factory-assigned PIN number.
