Immobilizer Operation

This vehicle has a passive theft-deterrent system.

The system does not have to be manually armed or disarmed.


The vehicle is automatically

immobilized when the vehicle is turned off.

The immobilization system is

disarmed when the vehicle is started or the ignition is in ACC/ACCESSORY and a valid transmitter is present in

the vehicle.


The security light, in the instrument

cluster, comes on if there is a problem with arming or disarming the

theft-deterrent system.

The system has one or more RKE transmitters matched to an

immobilizer control unit in the

vehicle. Only a correctly matched RKE transmitter will start the vehicle.

If the transmitter is ever damaged, you may not be able to start your vehicle.


When trying to start the vehicle, the security light may come on briefly

when the ignition is turned on.

If the engine does not start and the security light stays on, there is a

problem with the system. Turn the ignition off and try again.

If the vehicle will not change ignition modes (ACC/ACCESSORY, on, off), and the RKE transmitter appears to be

undamaged, try another transmitter.

Or, you may try placing the

transmitter in the transmitter pocket located in the center console.

If the ignition modes will not change with the other transmitter or with the transmitter in the transmitter pocket, your vehicle needs service. If the

ignition does change modes, the first transmitter may be faulty. See your


It is possible for the immobilizer

system to learn new or replacement RKE transmitters. Up to eight

transmitters can be programmed for the vehicle. To program additional

transmitters, see Programming
