Can you bypass the Immobilizer system?
Can you bypass the immobilizer system without buying anything. I woke up this morning and my immobilizer won't let my car start. I need to know if there is a quick and dirty way to get the car started so that I can get it to the dealer.
-Fuel pump is pumping
-car will turn over
only thing missing is a spark, would a bad coil trigger the Green immobilizer light to come on. Because according to everything that I can find in the Helms manual, my Immobilizer system should be working. I just get that green flash of death.
when i turn the key to the first position the Green light flashes 3 times then stops, according to the helms, that mean that the system recognizes my key.
when i turn it to start the car though it just spins and spins and spins. And the green light will just flash for 10 seconds and shut off.
then when i shut it off the Green light will flash three or five more times ( I forget) , but according to the manual that means the system is set correctly.
I really just need a quick fix so that I can get it to the dealer and I've heard there is a way, maybe involving the brake but I don't know. Please help
