    Hello all, I read an old post from 2010 in the engine and transmission mods forum. They were discussing the doctronic immobilizer bypass board. I'm trying to order one now. In the meantime if I just desolder the immobilizer chip off the ecu, will this allow me to start the car?
    Thanks for any help

    No, the other chips on the board are still going to try and utilize the immobilizer chip. You either need to have it tuned out or spoof the signal with your bypass board.

    And you'd want to by-pass it why?

    Finch13, Thanks for reply. How do you tune it out? T.$.Racing, because I can't start my car and I don't have time or money for this mickey mouse electronic bulls**t.
