Engine Immobilizer System Description

The engine immobilizer system compares the ID code that is registered in the transponder key ECU with the ID code of the transponder chip that is embedded in the ignition key. The system unsets if these ID codes match. Thus, the transponder key ECU and the ECM communicate with each other to authorize fuel injection and ignition, enabling the engine to start.

► The system is standard equipment on models without the smart key system.

► An engine immobilizer function is provided on models with the smart key system. For details, see page BE-89.
