Re: Car won't start periodically. Immobilizer problems. Code: P1693
the transponder itself is mounted in the top portion of the ignition key. is there a battery in it maybe?(not the one in the FOB) isnt there some light on the instrument panel that shows a key into a car type thingy? does that light up? another member is having same/similar problem.
Wife's car: 2008 GS, L4 AT Hypersilver. all Tuscani trim. metal silver trim plates, door handles, pulls and center fascia, some leather and many cat fur festooned interior parts. burn hole on rear seat along with stuffed kitty "Lucky." Traded 2/25/16 for a 2012 Black Kia Soul+, 2.0 L4@165HP, 6speed auto. 42k miles, all bells and whistles. no Gerbils(or Hamsters) but stuffed kitty "Lucky" has back seat (no burn hole)all to himself.
