the guy said in my model of car the immobiliser disables when you turn the key (or something to do with a transponder perhaps?) whereas in older models you need to fob to disable the immobiliser? He said as i am driving the car fine just now without the fob there will be no problems.

Does anyone know if I can just go and get a plain key cut (without fob) and use this in conjunction with the fob from the new alarm system?
Also does the explanation of how my immobiliser works seem acceptable as it does kind of make sense as i am using only the key to access the car via the drivers door then starting the car with it so it seems it must be the key that is disabling the immobiliser?
