Re: Emergency! Vehicle Immobilizer reset help needed ASAP!
Most factory alarm systems can be reset by locking/unlocking the vehicle with the KEY in the drivers side door.. The factory key fob should also do this.
Most of these lockouts seem to happen to people that have an aftermarket alarm systems, the factory security is still in place and if one unlocks the door and opens it without first unlocking it can trigger the factory security to lock down the vehicle. Normally if this is the case it can be solved by hooking up the factory disarm wire on the alarm. Lots of installers don't bother with hooking them up resulting in lockouts!
So if you do get locked out and nothing seems to work, hop out and lock/unlock the drivers side door with the key!
