Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone could help me shed some light on this situation.

I have recently purchased a 2nd hand 2004 manual Getz. Sometimes when it is in neutral and I attempt to start the car it won't turn over... the imbolizer light (little orange car with key in the middle of it) appears, when I put the car in gear it then will start fine (this light never appears under any other situation). There was one time when it wouldn't start in first gear either and then I had to put it in to 2nd to start it...... the immbolizer light appeared again.

Does this sound like an immobilizer issue?! and if so what could be causing it and are there any easy fixes?

I don't have remote keys with batteries or buttons. Just standard old school car key.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Iana,

I have had the clutch depressed fully when attempting to start the car in neutral and it won't start.

Tonight I discovered if I put the clutch down about 3/4 of the way and not the whole way it will let me start the car in neutral.

Starting to think its not the immobilizer but still have no idea what is going on :(
