I think mainak has faced a faulty system. Maruti is coming out with company fitted immobilizers for its cars and ICICI is giving a rebate of Rs500 on its insurance premium for cars with Immobilizers.

Immobilizer is a mandatory anti-theft device in advanced car markets like Europe and Australia. Transport Canada has made it mandatory that all new cars, light trucks, and SUVs are required to be equipped with an electronic immobilizer as of September 2007.

Statistics from these countries show a decrease in the Car thefts over the previous years, after it is made mandatory.

@babureddy - Even I have ordered an Autocop one with Immobs.

Would it have been better to go with the base autocop and get a steering lock / gear lock as suggested by Mainak. Even a gear lock serves the same funtion and prevents thief from driving away. So is an immob more advantageous?

Thanks

hey bro dont think much coz u hv already got it right
so now buy a gear lock as well...double the security. and yeah make sure that the installation is done before your eyes. Ensure tapred connectors. Just avoid taping.

Default Immobilizer for Cedia

What is immobilizer?
Immobilizer feature is in Cedia or not?

Sales guy said I can not make a duplicate key. There is a key number attached for every key. If I need a duplicate key, I should go to their sales/service office and order/get one with the key no.
I think this is Immobilizer. Am I correct or missing something?

My Maruti sales guy said the same thing.
So I promptly went and got a duplicate key made.
The ignition would come on with this duplicate but the car (WagonR) would refuse to start. self starter works, engine turns over but does not fire.
A good look at the meter cluster and I could see a padlock icon flashing. This did not happen with the original key.
Maruti call it the iCATS system - Intelligent Car Anti-theft System.

Hi,

> Maruti call it the iCATS system - Intelligent Car Anti-theft System.

The key fob contains a chip and a transmitter. The main unit would be under the dashboard. Unless the main unit gives the transmitted signal and is the correct one, it would lock the fuel injection system and your car won't start.

You can make the duplicate of the key part, but the rest cannot be duplicated locally.

I am not sure about the Cedia, but if the dealer has said that a duplicate won't work, maybe it has a similar system.

There are such ssytems available separately which can be fixed in any car in addition to or instead of a central locking system.

Right now, all Marutis come with this system. If I remember correctly, the Innova has it.

I am not sure about what other cars come with this factory fitted.
