How do I disable the engine immobilizer in my Proton Jumbuck Ute, Build Date Oct 2007?
The key fob fell apart while I was part way through turning the key.
Sounds a bit like unplugging your computer during a BIOS update.
Anyway, the alarm and door locks are still working if I could just disconnect the immobilizer, I would be more then happy, or does it have to be, ("re-mobilized") first.
If "re-mobilized" isn't a real word please don't bother telling me so!

0.10 amps is only 100 milliamps, and that is not enough to drain a battery. In fact, if your Ute has an engine computer, that may account for the amp draw. I'm not familiar with this car, as it is not sold in the US as that name. On some US cars, that circuit would be known as IOD (ignition off draw), and specifically for clock, radio pre sets, computer memory, and security parts if used. It is said as long as the amp draw is less than 150 milliamps (0.150A), everything is fine.
So, probably the engine computer, or radio pre-sets, or security apparatus, hey?
most cv axles or held in the gear box /diff by a round sectioned circlip at the end of the splines in the diff
once you have the axle free of the hub and bearings use a heavy hammer on the back side of the cv joint or a heavy slide hammer attached to the end of the axle
you have to compress that circlip so that it allows the axles to slide out
Most likely there could be three reasons for your problem:
1. Gear selector switch on the transmission has poor connections at P and N. (Adjust or replace the selector switch assembly, if it is automatic transmission).
2. Starter motor assembly needs overhauling/ repair.
3. Harness wiring.
Even though if the immobilizer system is armed, the starter should run normally but the car would't start.
Inertia switch is only relevant when you have a collision and the engien does not start. Fuel pump may not run and coils no spark. If not, same thing could also happen if the immobilizer is not disabled or the key FOB gets damaged. The ignition key has an RFID chip in it and if you drop your key or remove this chip, the car will not recognize the key and wont start. You need to use your spare key from then on.
