Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent in Honda Civic Ex 2000

Hi. I am yet to find an authentic answer to this one. I'll appreciate
if someone can tell me for sure about this:

Does the Honda Civic Ex 2000 come with a "Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent
system" embedded in a chip in the key. Is that true?

If so, is it really an effective security device? How easy would it be
for someone to brake the system? If it is not easy, I'll be glad that
my car has it. :)

Thanks.

http://automobiles.honda.com says yes.

Do you have a little blinking icon of a key on the instrument panel when
you first turn the key on or off?

No, there is no blinking key icon. Does that mean my car doesn't have
it?

Re: Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent in Honda Civic Ex 2000

No the imobilizer system started in the Civic model in 2001. The imobi
break down is:

97 Prelude Type I
98 Accord Type II ; 03 Type III
01 Civic Type II
02 CR-v Type II
99 Odyssey Type II, 05 Type III
03 Pilot Type II
06 Ridgeline Type III
Type I uses a RED programming key
Type III is a rolling code chip
none of the Types can interchange.
A clone key can be made for Type I and Type II systems only.

And the confusion continues.
Yesterday, I visited
<http://automobiles.honda.com/certified/specifications_full_specs.asp?ModelName=Civic+Seda n&ModelYear=2000>
Which listed the Immobilizer. Today, that's a 404 error, even though I'm
trying to get there from a "search" on the main site.

<http://automobiles.honda.com/certified/specifications.asp?ModelName=Civic+Sedan&ModelYear =2000>
Is a less complete listing, and shows "Ignition System: Electronic", where
the same page for 2001 shows "Ignition System: Electronic with Immobilzer".

My 2005 has the key icon on the instrument panel, which flashes for a few
seconds when I turn the car off.

Simply put any Honda that has green KEY icon in the gauge assembly display = a Honda with the imobilizer
system.
