    Does anyone know how I can turn my immobiliser off without the key ?? It never came with one when I bought it.. I know i'll probably have to end up going to a locksmith or Holden for a new key, just wanted to check if I could do something myself first...
    Cheers..

    open passenger side door and on the chassis bit is a little switch thingo for the immobiliser so you can turn it on/off.

    i suppose you could try to get the keyhole out, and just cross the wires it connects to. though i'd hope there's more to it than that.

    I know it might sound really dumb, but try any key. Mine turns with any old key! Got rid of the factory immobiliser anyway as it was playing up.

    if you want to drill out the cover plate, it is reasonably simple to get to the back of the override switch. There are threads here that talk about this in detail, and unfortunately, it is rather easy to bypass the immobilizer this way. (especially if you have two switches, one switched to 'on', and the other switched to 'off') I'm going to get a key cut eventually now that i have one switch removed from the car! Good luck.

    Seriously, I'd just get the key cut. Cost me $30 bucks or something (before the $110 for the remote), that way you have options.

    do you reckon they show the rivets pics of angelina jolie at the factory to make them hardened?

    all you gotta do is join the pink wire at the ecu to an ignition supply that will do the trick

    I have a toyota lexcen and the immobiliser will not turn off anymore and I don't have the key for it. I have tried the 45minute way and it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know of a simple way to turn off the immobiliser? if not some instructions for the hard way..

    yeah its quite easy, theres 4 wires that go to the key, two wires join when the immobiliser is ON to make the dash light flash, the other two join when its OFF to make the car go.
    you will have fun drilling out all the rivets to get at the ecu and wiring though.

    Me too please I'm buying a car off of Trademe ( NZ ) and the fullah I brought it off lost the main keys with the chip or rather on it and I need to figure out a way to get it from Tokoroa ( NZ ) to Auckland ( NZ ) getting it towed isn't a option so if I can get it started with out the Immobiliser then it will be okay till I get the Body Control box I ordered for it...
