i lost my immobilizer

Yesturday i somehow lost my immobilizer that allows my car to run. I have a spare key but it doesnt have a immobilizer on it. Could anyone point me in the right direction if they had a similar situation happen to them and how they fixed the problem.  
 
Thank you in advance ebrandon!

you mean

you lost your key fob for your immobi?  
 
I'm guessing it's likely aftermarket?  
 
When I got mine put in, they gave me 3 key fobs, 2 black regular and one red master.  
 
Did you have it installed, or was it a previous owner?

is it

factory or aftermarket. I'm guessing aftermarket, since the key fob is separate?

The

red one is required to make a copy. Is it possible to contact the previous owner to see if they still have the red fob

It's actually the law that you have to turn over the master key fob when selling a vehicle.  
 
If not, try and get the installation record so you'll know the model.  
 
Murray Chev and Sinclair Auto are the only 2 approved installers in Bdn.

Oh come on Jayson!

Just a little humour, if you don't laugh then you'll just end up crying about it and then it'll ruin your day!

we gave you the answers, but I need to get some work done today, so I can't come over and hold your hand.  
 
Be proactive, get out there and get on the horn to the PO, install shops, MPI, whatever.  
 
Get that master key fob would be the easiest answer. Get it, and get a couple of new ones made.  
 
Hopefully the PO just forgot to give it to you, and it's not lost.
