Q: my immobilizer is broken, my car wont start.

asked by on

My immobilizer is broken as someone tried to steal my car, now the car wont even turn over it will only roll start, ive had 2 mechanics look at it and they reckon they cant fix it :(
My car has a manual transmission.

You would need to have the immobilizer replaced and reprogrammed by a Honda dealer. This is the only way as it cannot be bypassed. You mentioned you had a few mechanics look at the car already, but if you’d like fresh set of eyes to assess you starting issue, consider YourMechanic.
