Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you Today the cheapest and best way to do what you want to do is buy a used ECU and lock set so it comes with the immobiliser module see image the bonus is the other person can not even unlock the vehicle. It will all have to come from the same spec vehicle and everything from the same vehicle.
