How do I arm the immobilizer?

The immobilizer is a key security feature. The immobilizer is responsible for making sure that your vehicle can only be operated with an authorized key. The system cannot be armed or disarmed; it will automatically arm when you remove the key from the ignition, and disarm when you return the key to the ignition.
