SOURCE: immobilizer

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: Engine immobilizer system problem

you really need the dealer for this one. car is too new and should be under warrenty. This should not of happen. Most likely you have a computer issue with codes stored that will direct the technician in fixing this.

Immobilzer problem proton gen2

The ignition key holds a sort of RFID chip. If you open it to change remote control battery or you dropped it to pieces and the chip comes off, you will not be able to start your car. Get your spare key and use it to start. The key that cannot be used to start has to be replaced/reprogrammed.

Ask to speak with the dealer manager and voice your concerns about what is happening. Explain that you are not happy with the service and ask how much all this is going to cost. If his answers are airy and unsatisfactory then I suggest you enlist the aid of legal counsel to ensure you do not get ripped off.
