How do I arm and disarm the immobilizer?

The immobilizer is a key safety feature that helps keep your vehicle from being stolen. The immobilizer makes it so that your vehicle cannot be started unless a key is in the ignition. You cannot manually arm or disarm the immobilizer; the system will automatically arm when you remove the key from the ignition, and disarm when you put the key back in the ignition.
