I used my remote starter. Car shut off when I put in

Customer Question

I used my remote starter. Car shut off when I put in reverse. An immobilized message came on the dashboard. Then the brakes froze I push the start button and I haven't been able to get the cars to start. We are stranded in a mall parking lot.

Is this a factory remote starter or aftermarket? It is important because the factory remote starter uses logic to bypass the immobilizer; aftermarkets use key simulators (or extra keys) to trick the immobilizer.
