02 civic immobilizer removal?

I'm having problems with my immobilizer and it's not in my budget to take it into the dealer right now. Is there a way to remove/disable the immobilizer so that I can drive it? the car is mechanically sound other than the immobilizer issue. I don't care about security, she has alot of miles and I just need something to get me to work til I can get a new car.

any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: 02 civic immobilizer removal?

Just to note, this will also disable the computer from being able to shutdown the fuel pump in a crash which may result in killing everyone so use at your own risk.

The immobilizer controls power to the fuel pump relay behind the glove box.

Remove the fuel pump relay and jumper the appropriate 2 connectors in that socket.

Your green light will flash, but otherwise your driving.

In case it is a problem with the key, try the other keys?

Re: 02 civic immobilizer removal?


What your describing is a horrific event that has happened to your car.

You could easily spend hundreds (thousands) of dollars to a shop to try to find and repair all the damages, and still end up with a car that wonít run.

If this was my car,
I would find a similar model at a pick a part junkyard.
Verify it has a unmolested dash and wire harness.

Discuss with the junkyard manager what you intend to do and agree upon a price they will sell you the harnesses for in writing. (More than once I have had them backtrack and say ohhh you didnít say that part, itís twice as much)

Pull the existing dash and wire harness out of the current car paying special note to every tool I need to accomplish the job, and what unexpected things I broke trying to get it out.
Pack a lunch and head to the junkyard with the same set of tools.
Remove the dash and all the harnesses and extra bits broken at home.

Arrive back home, install harnesses and try to start car before putting dash back together.

Whomever vandalized the car was certainly an amateur or a kid, not a professional thief IMO.

Got insurance?

I'd be fixing the wiring or replacing wiring as necessary
