Since 1995 the law in the UK stated all new private vehicles sold will be fitted with an immobiliser system, this was introduced earlier by some manufactures and was also introduced on commercial vehicles later. The immobiliser is a system for preventing the vehicle from being started without the correct key. The only way to steal modern vehicles is by obtaining the keys. The immobiliser usually works with an alarm system but the two are separate systems, 50% of modern vehicles do NOT have an alarm system, just the immobiliser.
"My car won't start, is it the immobiliser?"
The immobilisers on modern vehicles are usually very reliable, the reason for the vehicle not starting is due to a problem other than the immobiliser, start with the basics check the vehicles battery by turning on your lights, then check all the fuses.
"I have lost my keys. Is there any easy way to override my immobiliser system?"
The simple answer is NO. There would be no point in having an immobiliser if it was easy to disable. Each manufacture uses their own systems so each system works in a different way, some can be overridden by a pin code, most new systems are built into the vehicle and cannot be removed.
Range/Distance Problems - My key fob does not operate very far from my vehicle?
This can be caused by many factors. As we use more wireless electronic products, the radio waves interfere with each other and this is the most common problem when your remote key fob loses its range from your vehicle. Known problems are also poorly fitted receivers on the very early Rovers (1993 -1995) and Land Rover Discovery 1995. It is common to be right next to your vehicle before the remote key fob will work.
