Immobilizer Conundrum 05 TSX

Post by mathlabs »

Hey everyone,

My 2005 TSX currently has an 2008 ECU that I've been using for the past two years. My California Smog is coming up and I swapped on my stock parts, and my stock ECU.

Well I completely forgot that my tumbler was rekeyed for the 2008 ecu and now I cant start it with the original 2005 ecu.

I want to avoid visiting my locksmith twice (once to reprogram back to the 2005 ecu, and again to go back to the 08 ecu).

Can I turn off the immobilizer in my 2008 ecu now that its synced up to my car? That way I can swap between ecu's freely whenever smog comes up?

No, the immobilizer cannot be turned off.
