It's a 2002 (02) Ford Ka Style.

According to the Association of British Insurers it has a security class of T2 which means "An immobiliser that has been judged to comply to the Thatcham criteria"

Sweet! But I guess my insurance company already know this when they ask for my number plate and it shows up in their database they know it's a 1.3 Style...

Park in in Tilbury overnight. If it's found burnt-out and dumped in a local park the next morning then it doesn't/didn't have an immobiliser. If it's found burnt-out the next morning where you left it overnight, then it has/had an immobiliser.

In the key of a ford, it'll have a red or blue bit of plastic, this is the electronic chip that disarms the immobiliser (normally cat 2).

T2 is a thatcham cat 2 immob. If you want to keep a key as a spare, make sure its the red one, blue and black are slaves. The Red is the master and is needed to code new transponder keys.

give a pikey a chip barm in payment for nicking it.

if he eats the chip barm, and your car is gone, then it dosent have one.

..... if the chip barm goes cold, and the car hasnt moved, then you have one.
