Acura RSX: i just bought a 2002 Acura RSX{manual}2.0L from

Customer Question

i just bought a 2002 Acura RSX{manual}2.0L from an impound yard about 2 weeks ago. the car drove fine gave no warning lights at all. i drove home from work the other night locked the doors and went to bed.the next morning i got in my car turned the key and it would not start, it seemed as though it had a dead battery. i then tried to get a jump start and that failed. i owned a 1971 chevelle before this car witch was extremely easy to figure out but, due to the high maintenance technology in newer vehicles i decided i was not going to tough anything i just went and purchased a new car battery. i put the battery in and the car still wont start. the only visible change is that now when i lock the doors the little red blinking security light in the dashboard no longer flashes when the car is locked. do you have any idea what could be wrong? please help!

sounds like the immobilzer may have failed. when you turn the key to the on position is there a key key symbol that lights up and then goes out? or does it blink?
