Hi if your immobiliser chip brakes in your key while you are driving will the immobiliser make the car a Kia picanto 2005 cut out and stop

I don't think so, it would be a potentially hazardous scenario. Also very unlikely to be the chip that 'breaks'

When testing my daughters picanto for a recent issue I unplugged the immobiliser antenna and the car kept running.

Years ago I used to use a bare cut key to start my company car to de ice (not recommended nowadays) but I had to hold the correct key to the column for it to start, once removed the car kept running.

Hope this helps.

There is, but a public forum isn't the place to publish the information for obvious reasons, best to get it recovered to a decent garage or call a mobile auto electrician.

Hi, no I'm not a mechanic.

It wont be easy to do that would defeat the object of them.

As above a auto electrician or dealer would be my recommendation.
