(1)Firstly, I was told that the Scorpio LX's did not have any immobiliser.
(2)Then after a few weeks they said it had one but the code may have to be changed.
(3)And lastly upon inquiries on the company helpline and talks with their expert, it was known that these immobilisers had an unique code for every Scorpio.So codes would not have to be changed to the one the customer desired.
Thanks for the information,Sriniwas

Just to get an idea of the networking of scorpio theifs would like to narrate an incident. Some two years back my neighbour at my hometown in Calicut (Kerala) got a scorpio. One night he heard some sound from his garange and went to check it out only to find his scorpio being driven away. He tried to chase it by waking up neighbours and also called up police control room asking them to check all intersections from our area, all was of no use though. He left out all hopes of getting back the vehicle after few weeks and even police said they cant do much.
Then some five months back he got call from police saying they have recovered the vehicle from a village in Punjab It seems in some village in Punjab, some drunken guys in a scorpio went and hit some people on road, villagers catch hold of them and hand over to police. Police check the vehicle papers and find its all bogus, scorpio was having a Punjab registration then. They then managed to track the orginal vehicle owner through engine number. My neighbour didnt get back the vehicle since its held back with case in Punjab and also since he took the insurance claim he wont be getting it anyways. But its couple of scorpio theives out of business.
