Hey everyone,
I am just trying to get through this remote and immoblizer stuff. I am trying to get access to the info on getting the skc number. I only got 1 remote with my car and now it is broken. Every time I get in and out of the car my alarm is going off. (I unplugged the horn so it is just the flashers now). I have almost no info. I found a tag in the manual book but I think it is the radio reset code.

The radio code is also a 4 digit number, normally written down on a radio code card.

If the alarm is going off it has nothing to do with the immobilizer. The alarm system and immobilizer system are separate. The alarm system monitors the doors and whatnot and I believe, may prevent engine cranking or starting. The immobilizer system only monitors the key chip and will let the engine start perfectly fine- it just shuts the engine off after a second.

I suggest first scanning the car for codes and then seeing if a sensor is tripping the alarm.
