I have the mechanic manual for my car and I have a picture of it but I just cant find it too many wires all over. Can you tell me where it can be
I was installing my radio a couple of days ago. I removed the dash to install the radio. While doing that I found this module box (i attached picture in this email) next to the ignition key slot. I though it was a module (which I realized was the ATD box for the car) for the steering wheel radio control or something. So out of curiosity I unplugged the connector from the module and as I went to remove it, it wouldn't come out so I tugged it more and nothing so I decided to leave it alone and then I put the connector into the module.
I installed my radio and it worked but when I went to turn on the car, it did turn on with out a problem but then it immediately turned off. I thought it was a fluke so I turned it on again and the same thing. I did it a couple of times more until it wouldn't turn on anymore. The car wasn't dead at all but it just wouldn't turn on. I thought it had something to do with that module I touched but I didn't see anything physically wrong.
I replaced the ignition switch, the starter motor, the crank and cam sensor and still the car would do the same thing. I also have a remote start key and when I pressed the button to start the car from a distance, it turned on and didn't turn off. I opened the door and placed the key in and it turned off.
I took out my ObD2 scanner and it gave me an error code: P0513 Incorrect Immobilizer Code.I went online and the only thing I found that I can do is disconnect the battery from the car, push on the pedal to drain any left juice and leave it overnight. I did that and in the morning I connected it back and the engine turned on but immediately turned off again.
Though I called one or two locksmiths and they tell me its electrical and not the immobilizer because I still have access to my car. The only thing I havnt checked is the starter relay I have the mechanic manual for my car and I have a picture of it but I just cant find it. Can you tell me where it can be
