immobilizer not kicking in

Hi, I have a weird problem with my immobilizer and not sure if its because of the very cold weather thats causing it.

Normally the longest its taken for the immobilizer to kick in is 15 mins, but when I parked up for a few hours at work or at home and then start the car it starts straight away without the need for pressing the fob.

Im not sure which alarm system it is or where its located, but according to my insurance documents its a Clifford Concept 500 the car is a UK MY99 Turbo 2000.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance.

Re: immobilizer not kicking in

Forgot to mention in the above that the car was locked using the fob, checked all doors and they were locked.
last night went shopping, left my mam in the car and i took the keys with me and didn't lock the doors and when I came back the immobilizer had kicked in and I was only away for about half an hour
Then went for petrol again didn't lock the doors got back in and the immobilizer had kicked in. I thought the immobilizer is supposed to kick in after a certain period of time after the key is removed from the ignition even if the car is locked which it used to?

So since the cars electrics had warmed up during this period does that mean I have pretty much answered my own question that the cold is affecting the electrics/immobilizer when the doors are locked
