Thanks for the help John.
The Coparts info said that there was no key, so I am hoping that the doors are at least unlocked. Joe CVT explained that the CVT can be shifted out of park by inserting any key into the rectangular slot under a pop out cover near the front of the shift console, assuming that the car has a functional 12V battery, so that should let me push it around once I get some inflated tires on it.
This car is to be for demo only, will never be on the road, and could even end up with all components and harnesses on a roll around test stand.
We will need to get the car to run, so the immobilizer issue will somehow need to be resolved.
I put up a collage of photos of the car at:
So you can better see what I have to work with.
There is no way I can get this to the nearest dealor who is 25 miles away.
A look at my 2000 electrical service manual shows the Immobilizer reciever communicating with the ECM, and the result is a grounding of the cars fuel cut relay to enable fuel supply.
Is the key code stored in the ECM?
Could I swap ECM's at the dealors with mine for the purposes of key reprogramming with a new key, then swap back to drive home, but this is a CVT and mine is a MT, so it is probably not compatible ?
I have access to a Genesis and a Mastertec scan tool with software that can interface with the scan port, could that reprogram the ECM here?
I suppose I could just add an external ground for the fuel cut relay return as long as the ECM works otherwise?
