I bough this great little Ignis 1.5 Sport today and it drove the 60 miles home without a hitch. I love it.
It only had one problem, the immobiliser fob locked the doors but then the alarm started. The seller said he thought it was to do with a wire at the front under the bonnet which did have a broken switch so he taped it up.
So, when I got home, I tried earthing the wire and still no joy so I taped it back up. The fob did exactly the same as it did before I touched it and I went out for another spin. It ran great.
To be clear, to operate it, you put the Suzuki key in the barrel, turn it till its before the lights come on then the red LED to the red flashes and there is a bleep. Press the button on the fob and it will then start.
A genuine factory fitted system I'm pretty sure.
Anyway, I got home all chuffed and thought I'd best lock the car using the key. I locked the 2 doors and the boot.
When I went out half hour later to drive again, the bleeper did nothing whereas it used to operate the central locking.
Putting the key in and turning it there is now no red LED light and the car wont start.
It wont even turn the starter, so I'm pretty sure the immobiliser has kicked in.
I've checked the fuses (including the impossible ones to find above the drivers knee (RHD), the lights on the fob light up when I press the button so I don't think its those batteries either.
I'm baffled and cant even take it to my alarm specialist because it wont move.
I need to get to work Monday in it.
Any ideas anyone?

You will probably require an onsite mobile Locksmith with coding knowledge and appropriate equipment to execute the fix. :(

Not really the I'm depth reply I was looking for. Can anyone tell me where the door lock fuse is then?
I'm convinced it's a blown fuse but can't find it.

If you could find any alarm unit or module this may prove handy, I'm not aware of any factory alarms fitted to the ignis and isolating the starter motor is common for aftermarket units. The factory immobilizer will show a locked padlock on the dashboard and this uses the ECU to stop it from running. 2003 is the change over year for these from the RG to RM version so this info may help as well. If your not aware of the differences this site should help identify yours https://catalogs.ssg.asia/suzuki/?lang=en#

Ah ha. That helps.
I assumed it stopped the starter motor working but maybe you're right, it's ECU controlled.
I'll check the vin tomorrow.
It's the old with a flashing red Led and I think a lock on the dash

I have a MY 2000 Ignis that originally did not have this factory immobiliser. A short time after purchase, we were advised it did not meet Australian Car Standards without it and we had to take it to a dealership to get it fitted. I hate it with a vengeance - can't go anywhere in Stealth Mode without it either beeping the horn or flashing the indicators. I removed it from mine - see image.

I was told to leave it in the car, because the engine ECU was reprogrammed and must receive a signal from it, but was told that if I cut the black wire and tape up both ends, then find the black wire and the black wire and join them together, it will be bypassed!

Seriously, I'm selling the parts off the wreck. There is 3 fuses in the Immobiliser loom and the majority of plugs go between the cars originals (interfere with the circuits). It is located above the brake pedal with security head screw going up. The steering column and cluster removed will make it a tad easier.

I wiggled the bracket from left to right until the screw was loose, then a sharp philips head screwdriver was able to turn it out.

Fixed !!!! Anyone want to buy an immobiliser?

Thanks to 2000IGNIS, you showed me the way.
Once I'd found the bloody box, I followed all the wires and cut/reconnected as required and she fired up first twist of the key.
The central locking is working now too so I'm a happy bunny.
If anyone else gets the same problem its not a tricky job.
All immobiliser wires either earth a wire or disconnect it.
Just cut or join the loom out.

Great fun to drive but could benefit from power steering for the wife.
Next job, fit an android screen and sat nav.

I'm pretty sure the P/Steering from a 1.3L may fit, but with the 1.5L Sport being so different to the 1.3L Standard, there may be a risk to that possibility. It is electric. I have sold a column to someone restoring a 1960s model car.

Glad you found the black wire and fixed your problem!
:p

HI, I hate my Ignis's immobilizer aswell. I have tried to remove ,but did not disconnect black wire. so it started, but car just stopped after about 5 second.
So, Do I have to cut all black wire and rejoin them black to black?
Or as long as I disconnect / isolate immobilizer ,then should it work?

thanks

You will need to ask Rosssaab
I have removed the system from a non drivable car, that is all
