Unfortunatly it is practiclly impossible to bypass the system unless you have a very deep electronics background and the wiring diagram for the vehicle. It is not just clipping a wire and presto its working. The immobilizer system is designed to be pretty complex so it is harder to steal your car. You most likely need to contact your local dealer if you are having an immobilizer issue. Sorry about the bad news. Hope this helped, if so please click accept.
