I have a smart...

I have a smart key and the car just gives a loud buzzing sound when the ignition button is depressed. I believe the engine immobilizer system might be the issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the key stripped or worn?

No ma'am, the remoteam

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your smart?

Looks good

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your smart?

Toyota corolla 2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

We've tried depressing brake and putting the remote with Toyota side Against ignition button

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We've also tried moving the steering wheel from side to side

No sir, my husband is setting it up to try and jump it now.

usually low battery voltage makes that kind of noise when trying to start. warn him to jump it properly or he will have more expensive repairs.

The jump worked! It started. Sorry to bother you. We thought it was the engine immobilizer system. I'm not used to fancy cars. Thank you

so I as right about the battery and low voltage? Now I would check why the battery went dead.
