I am helping a friend to get his car (1999 Solara V6 SLE, automatic) started after being repoed. We have got the car back from the auction, and the key would no longer turn in the ignition. I bypassed the lock cylinder by removing the ignition switch from the back. I am able to get the car to crank, but it will not turn over. We have the original black key with transponder, and Key fob. When I hit the unlock button on the key fob it will unlock all the doors, and flash the lights, but the red security light on the cluster continues to blink even after pressing the unlock button. I actually used a screw driver to break the lock cylinder free, and allow me to turn the steering wheel. Do you think this may have damaged the immobilizer system somehow (from what i read the antenna is actually located somewhere near(or on) the lock cylinder)? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
