QUESTION:

I have a 1995 Izusu Trooper and it wouldn’t start. had it towed and the mechanic says the ‘security system’ is locked up. I do not have the remote. Now what? help, help! we had it towed to a local mechanic who says that the security system will not allow it to start. I do not have the remote. I want to know if we can override the system and how.

ANSWER:

What needs to be done:

  1. Disconnect the battery
  2. Insert ignition key and turn it to the “ON” position
  3. With Key still in the “ON” position, reconnect the battery
  4. Now turn the key forward tot he “START” position and start the car

What this does is to allow the engines computer to reset itself.
