Thatcham Category 2 Immobilisers
A Category 2 immobiliser is a self arming device that cuts 2 circuits on the vehicle that stops it from running, for example by interfering with the starter circuit and fuel or ignition. Once the ignition is switched off the system will arm automatically after a minute. After this period in order to start the car the immobiliser must be disarmed.
There are 2 main types, a touch key immobiliser or a transponder immobiliser. With the touch key type you have to touch the coded key into a receptacle in the vehicle and the system will disarm and the car will start. With a transponder type, you simply carry a small coded chip on your keyring and when the key is placed into the ignition the transponder is read by the immobiliser and in turn disarms the system. This type is more discrete and user friendly.
