Default 2005 Tucson - Immobilizer!!!

Hi, the immibilizer on my Tucson (2005)RHD has an intermitant fault!!
whenever you need to get just about anywhere urgently it will lock the vehicle in that in car icon flashes, and thats your lot.
Does anyone know of a silver bullet, wooden stake or variety of garlic which will disable it? I should prefer the risk of it getting stolen just to know that I can rely on it starting when I need it. The log book is not a lot of help, although there are about three unconected sections that skirt qround the topic.
can I immobilise the immobiliser? That is the question???
On a brighter note, we used her to go skiing in the Pyrannes last inter.... what a fabulous drive in snowy, twisty, climbing swooping countryside! I finshed every trip with a watermelon smile!

Not too knowledgeable about this
But, have heard that the antenna that goes around the key just needs
To be cleaned and may be soldered to make good connection

Wish you luck

Default Immobiliser

On closer inspection both key-fobs are a bit damaged around thr joint. One locks n inlocks and the other just locks. Neither disable immobiliser. Will try clean up n new batteries, then maybe replace fobs.

Default Immobiliser woes

Hi, inserted new batteries + face down as per manual, although the others were in the other way up, Ha that's the problem. Marched out to car - absolutely nothing with either fob. Swapped bateries around, worked as previously - one fob locks n unlocks, the other just locks, immobiliser still immobilising.
will have a beer and think about it.
Regards, Pugwash.
