Default Emergency start

Guys, if the immobilizer inside the key, stops working, is there any emergency procedure to follow, in order to start the motor?

None that I'm aware of, and none listed in the OEM service manuals. Maybe someone here knows of something, like hot-wiring the car....

I find this very hard to believe,where did you get that info from? The most stolen cars are IIRC, are German makes.

Also, I doubt whether it's your key at fault, (mine gets wet weekly when it goes into my surfboard leash). I'd look deeper into the system.

It's my wife's car. But she, as most women drivers, doesn't know this tinny detail. Since I have the obligation to keep the cars up & running, I' m trying to find out how.

Im not sure where i read this but one method was to insert the key put into the run position, disconnect the battery,(taking note of the radio code) re connect the battery remove the key and the start as normal but a i say i am not sure this is correct but worth a try.
