Hi Marvin,

Rodeo had, and still does have issues with immobiliser modules.

You could have a faulty immobiliser module, a poor connection between the module and the reader, an ECM issue, a poor ground, or low battery volts.

A Tech 2 scan of the vehicle will tell which way to go.

There is a revised immobiliser module available for some early RA Rodeo.
