Immobilizer

FCC WARNING

FCC WARNING
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the users authority to operate the equipment.

The immobilizer system is designed to prevent an unauthorized person from starting the engine. Only keys registered with your vehicles immobilizer system can be used to operate your vehicle. Even if an unregistered key fits into the ignition switch and can be turned to the START position, the engine will automatically stop after several seconds.

Each immobilizer key contains a transponder in which the keys ID code is stored. When a key is inserted into the ignition switch and turned to the ON position, the transponder transmits the keys ID code to the immobilizer systems receiver. If the transmitted ID code matches the ID code registered in the immobilizer system, the system allows the engine to be started. Since the ID code is transmitted and acted upon almost instantly, the immobilizer system does not impede normal starting of the engine.

If the engine fails to start, pull out the key once before trying again. Refer to Ignition switch.
