Any idea if 2005 New Honda city has an inbuilt immobilizer or not?

Once I tried to solve the myth of immobiliser on my Xylo by removing the chip from the key and tried to start the engine. It cranks , however won't start the engine.That means, may be the fuel pump is cut off while immobilised ( I am not sure on this. )
Anyway , it's a good technology. The only couple of downsides are , when dealing with imported or old cars , it's impossible to make a duplicate key easily and if the immobliser system goes wrong , the car won't start.

I had purchased a new Elantra around 2008, there were few occasions where it simply refused to start and the Hyundai guys could not do anything since it was not reproducible. This got narrowed down to the immobilizer only because of the experts in our forum. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ing-start.html (Elantra CRDI budging to start)
