Alarm and immobiliser ? Empty Alarm and immobiliser ?

Post by 'Old'SeaDog Wed 4 Nov 2020 - 21:36

My alarm went off the other day whilst reversing out of the drive.....and I could still drive the car with it going off.
Has anyone else got an immobiliser fitted as standard with their alarm ? I always assumed that this was the case, but obviously not on mine.

Silly question from me so forgive my ignorance but how would I know if I had an immobiliser fitted?

Others may correct me, but as the alarms were fitted after production in the UK, I think it will be separate to the immobiliser. The immobiliser works off an RFID chip in the key itself and is factory fitted in manufacture regardless of whether you have an alarm fitted or not.

You will have one. the transmitter to turn it off is built in to your keys. That is why if you get a new key cut it would have to be programmed in to be recognised by the car.

Oh, I assumed....possibly wrongly....that if the alarm went off that the immobiliser would also kick in, so stopping the car being driven ?
