Icon8 Installed bypass, fried immobilizer! help!

I've got an issue.


My buddy and I were installing a Clifford alarm system into my car. Well, the alarm install went outstanding. Then I got the imobilizer bypass in the mail, so we began to put that in. Installed it, and discovered that I neeed a new starter! Bam, installed that, nowwww....

I believe that my immobilizer has been shorted somehow. The reason I thin this is because even without the bypass hooked up, the engine wll turn over, but it will not start. The green key light on the dash is also not coming on. I dont believe its the ECU part of the immobilizer because the the engine wouldn't turn over at all. So somehow I need to re-flash my immoblizer that's located underneath the steering column. I've been told this is a dealer-only thing.

Anyone have any ideas? Had any issues like this? Of course, I'd rather not replace the entire immobilizer system. Can a Honda dealership simply re-flash the immoblizer itself?

Any input is appreciated.

I doubt it fried that part of the computer but it did disable it, just go to a Honda/Acura shop not dealer $$$$$ it shouldnt take longer then 30 mins its just a re-flash easy in easy out.

Also just make sure your fuses are all good because it could be as easy as that.
