Hi there good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response ,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you tonight

Ok what has happened previous to this Immobilsor light flashing ie : has the vehicle been jump started etc

As the Immobilsor light that flashes on the dash

I also assume when the ignition is on its flashing rapidly (faster than normal )

When you put ignition on The light should come on solid for 3 seconds then go out this is the self test passing

If it starts flashing rapidly then this means you have an Immobilsor active issue

What to do is leave the light flashing rapidly for 1 minute then watch the light as it will emit a flash code ie: 1 Flash - PAUSE - 5 flashes = flash code 15

If you can check this code and let me know I can advise you further

Kindest regards ***** *****
