Welcome to the forum charlene,

I think you took it to some cowboys not mechanics, It is most likely a dirty TDC Sensor and nothing to do with the immobiliser.

Here's how to renew it............

TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Just cleaning the sensor tip will cure your problem, there is no need to buy a new one.

In the last picture you can see the shiny tip on the new TDC Sensor.

I have altered the title of your thread so it makes more sense.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
