DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
Passive immobilisation occurs when the key is removed from the ignition switch and the drivers door is opened,
after a period of 30 seconds the engine will become immobilised. If the ignition is turned off or the key is removed
from the ignition switch and drivers door is not opened, the engine will become immobilised after 5 minutes.
The passive immobilisation system operates in conjunction with the transponder coil located around the ignition
switch barrel. The transponder coil emits an electro magnetic waveform signal which excites the remote handset
into transmitting a remobilisation signal. When remobilisation is requested, the anti-theft alarm ECU transmits an
appropriate code to the ECM on Td5 models or the engine immobilisation ECU on 300Tdi models.
Active immobilisation is only invoked when the vehicle is locked using the remote handset. Active immobilisation
performs the same engine disable functionality as the passive immobilisation previously described, but includes
full CDL and activation of perimetric and volumetric alarm modes.
