How to use AUTEL MK808 IMMO Service?
An immobilizer is an anti-theft mechanism that prevents an automobile’s engine from starting if the correct ignition key is not used or other device is present. This device prevents thieves from starting the vehicle by a method known as hot wiring. Most new vehicles have an immobilizer as standard equipment. An important advantage of this system is that it doesn’t require the vehicle owner to activate it; it operates automatically. An immobilizer is a more effective anti-theft protection than an audible alarm alone; many auto insurance companies offer lower rates for vehicles that are equipped with them.
As an anti-theft device, an immobilizer disables one of the systems needed to start a vehicle’s engine, usually the fuel supply or the ignition. This is accomplished by radio frequency identification between a transponder in the ignition key and a device called a radio frequency reader in the steering column. When the key is placed in the ignition, the transponder sends a signal with a unique identification code to the reader that relays it to a receiver in the vehicle’s computer control module. If the code is correct, the computer allows the fuel supply and ignition systems to operate and start the vehicle. If the code is incorrect or absent, the computer disables the system, and the vehicle will be unable to start until the correct key is placed in the ignition.
