    Good day to all. I have a Mazdaspeed6 which battery went dead. I changed it and three days later it would not start. Since it was the only working vehicle, I would push start it. Two days later I took it to a mechanic and they found that the switch for the clutch was bad. I ordered a new one, Shop installed it, car now starts. Just when the Shop called me to come pick my car up, they are telling my that it won't start and it looks like the Immobilizer is active. The remote is locking and unlocking the car, but it just won't start. I took the Key out of the Credit card size remote turn it to the on position then try starting it..nothing..but the immobilizer started flashing. I took the Key to Lock and Unlock the driver side door of the car then try to start it again....NOTHING.......Can anyone help with my issue?

    Unfortunately you need to tow it to the dealership

    That would be my next issue. I don't trust my local Mazda dealership. Who would you recommend, on the East coast, that can look at a modded Mazdaspeed 6?.... I actually bought my car from Jim Ellis Mazda in Atlanta many moons ago

    Dealership pricers are pretty standard between locations in my experience

    You asked... When are dealership pricers ever reasonable? However when it comes to immobilizer issues you're kind of stuck going to them
