1.1.9. Electronic immobilizer (anticreeping system)

Your car can be equipped with an immobilizer. The electronic immobilizer is intended for blocking of start of the engine of the car, thus, the probability of stealing of the car is minimized.
The anticreeping system – an immobilizer allows to start the car engine only in the presence of the wearable card "Advanced Key" registered in system.

At launch of the engine an auxiliary key (for example, in case of the category of a battery of the wearable card "Advanced Key" or violation of its working capacity) implement the listed below recommendations. Otherwise the system will not be able correctly to accept a signal from an auxiliary key, and the engine will not be started.

The anticreeping system (immobilizer) becomes more active at turn of the switch of ignition from the provision of "ON" (ignition is included) in the provision of "ASS" (auxiliary consumers of the electric power) or "LOCK" (blocking). The immobilizer indicator located on the dashboard blinks with frequency two seconds before switching off.

Switching off of an immobilizer.
The anticreeping system (immobilizer) is switched off at turn of the switch of ignition in the provision of "ON" (ignition is included) if at you there is a wearable card "Advanced Key" registered by system. At the same time the indicator of an immobilizer will light up approximately on 3 with and then will go out. If the engine is not started in the presence of the registered card and the signaling device of an immobilizer continues to burn or blink, – it can testify to malfunction of anticreeping system.
The engine is also not started and the indicator of an immobilizer burns or blinks if the wearable card is in such zone from where the system cannot reliably find a signal, for example on the control panel or in a glove box. Shift the wearable card to other place, turn the ignition switch in the provision of "LOCK" (blocking) and then try to start the engine. Signals from a body – and radio stations, from the send-receive device or the mobile phone can represent hindrances for work of an immobilizer. If when using of the registered wearable card "Advanced Key" the engine is not started, pay attention to the immobilizer indicator. If it blinks, turn the ignition switch in the provision of "ASS" (auxiliary consumers of the electric power) or "LOCK" (blocking) and make a small pause. Then try to start the engine.
