Mostly i want to start the car the sign of the immobiliser will blink in the dashboard. I tried to put the sensor witch is inside the key to place directly on the ring. But this will not help.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the problem is with the both keys
Expert:  Kevin replied 10 months ago.

ok this would indicate a problem with either the pick up ring or the imobiliser ecu either way a diagnostic tool will be needed to find the cause

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it is not possible to connect some wires to bypass?

unfortunatly not the key has a code inside chip until module sees the code it will not start .the only other option is to but a secondhand lock set but you will also need the engine ecu ,instrument clutster ,imobiliser ecu ignition barrel and pickup all from the same car
