Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Unfortunately there isn't a way to disable an immobilizer. The immobilizer has to validate the key and send a signal to the engine controller that it's ok to run the engine. If you were to disconnect the immobilizer module, unplug it or remove a fuse, etc, the ECM wouldn't receive a message that's ok to run the engine. Once the vehicle is built with an immobilizer module it can't be removed because the other modules on the vehicle will still retain memory that it should be there.
