Customer Question

I have a 2004 Acura MDX, I have wired in a Ready Remote Starter and I am having trouble with the immobilizer interface. I need to know where the transponder unit is, and how to bypass it with a 556U interface.

Hello, I will try to help you the best I can.

My past experience with remote start systems is that you need a programmed key to be mounted next to the transponder.

The transponder is located right where you insert the key, There is a ring around the ignitionswitch that reads the chip in the key.

usually an extra key is programmed and taped to the underside of the ignition switch so the transponder sees the key and allows the vehicle to start.
