Immobilizer issues

Recommended Posts

So I took the car to a porsche shop today where the could actually program the immobilizer. The one I purchased online was from another porsche which could not be programmed. Had to buy a brand new one for $391 + the $109 programming fee. They still could not turn the car on. No fault codes were showing up as well.

They stated that its the starter relay and starter. Decided to take it with me and try to mess with it on my own. When I got back I tried to push start it, but it still won't turn on.

Now I'm thinking it's not the starter, but that the immobilizer is still not programmed correctly.

One thing they did do was make the remote function with the new immobilizer, which was not working before.

So what do you guys think? Could they have not programmed the unit correctly or what? Feel a bit disappointed.

Note: this is for a 99 boxster that had a burnt immobilizer due to water damage.
