Tried to start my 95 honda civic coupe couple days ago. It struggled to start so i replaced the battery with a new one but now when i go to start it the car wont even turn over and it sounds like the immobiliser wont let the car start. It just clicks any time i try to start it then the alarm goes off.I have tried the fob and turning the alarm on and off but still no joy.
Can anybody help with info on this or any way i can bypass the immobiliser.
(heard a thing about the immobilisers on the hondas(thatcham) are touchy when it gets damp or too cold)??????
????????????

Na it's worse than that, they're 'touchy' when they're disconnected from the battery for more than 10 minutes.

Here is how to use the "pcm brake code" You weill need to call your local dealership and give them you vin # to get the code.

To start the engine, follow this procedure:
1. Cut a temporary key using the key code and a
non-transponder key blank.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON (II) with the
temporary key.
3. Enter the first digit of the immobilizer brake code
by pressing and releasing the brake pedal the same
number of times as the digit. For example, if the
first digit is 4, press and release the brake pedal 4 times.
4. Turn the ignition switch to Lock (0) and then back
ON (II).
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to enter the second, third,
fourth, and fifth digits of the code. You have up to
30 seconds to enter each digit.
6. After you enter the fifth digit, the immobilizer
indicator on the dash will blink five times,
meaning you can now start the engine with the
temporary key.
While the engine is running, the immobilizer
indicator will stay on. If the engine isn’t started
within 10 minutes, you’ll have to reenter the
immobilizer brake code. You’ll also have to reenter
the code if the engine is shut off for more than 10
minutes.

Doesnt the immobiliser usually cut the power to the ignition/fuel system? If after you've followed the steps above, it still just clicks; the starter motor could be knackered.
