We have developed a method to properly remove the immobilizer system from within your ECU safely, without any check engine light codes, and while retaining full OBD2 operation for street legal/smog legal applications. This is an excellent option for those with engine swaps who would like to run the correct stock ECU for their engine, but are hindered by the ECU's immobilizer. This can also be used as a method to avoid paying your Honda or Acura dealer's fees to reprogram your immobilizer system any time you replace lost keys.
After checkout, simply ship your ECU to us along with a print out copy of your order confirmation email (will be emailed to you after checkout). Turnaround time after we receive your ECU is 1-2 business days. Your total wait time will depend on the method you use to ship your ECU to us, as well as the return shipping method you select at checkout. Questions? Please don't hesitate to contact us.

- 2000-2001 Acura Integra (P72, P73, P75 ECU's)
- 1997-2001 Honda Prelude ("P5M" or "P5P" ECU) > If being used in 97-01 Prelude, will also require the prelude starter-kill wiring bypass step

Are there any disadvantages to having the immobilizer removed from my ECU/PCM?
The vehicle can now be started with a non-programmed key. If a thief has a key that is cut to fit the locks on your vehicle, they can now start your car even though their key is not programmed/coded for your vehicle.

Hi. I’m interested in removing the immobilizer on my 2001 Gsr ecu so I can get my vehicle 2000 civic registered for that motor. Will there be a check engine light? Also will there be any delays due to the covid-19?

Can this be done to a 8th gen si ecu?
We cannot bypass the immobilizer on that ECU internally, but it can be done externally using our Mobilizer-6 module: https://www.hamotorsports.com/collections/wideband-gauges/products/mobilizer-6
Does this work on Honda Odysseys? My 99 Odyssey EX 3.5L v6 won't start because of this exact issue. There are no Odysseys listed on your models supported for ECU immobilizer removal. I've found the ECU but have not removed it, can't see the number to take a pic of it. TIA for your response!
Unfortunately we are not able to bypass/remove the immobilizer on this ECU. Thanks for checking with us.
