Occasionally, the immobilizer circuit on my TL does not activate. I don't get a solid key light or a blinking light, I get nothing. It seemed completely random, but I think I discovered a pattern. If I repeatedly turn the ignition on and off in a short span of time (say to roll the windows down or check the mileage, etc) the immobilizer will stop working. If I keep trying to start the car by turning the key on and off, it will not work. No key light comes on and of course, the engine will crank but won't start. However, if I wait a period of time (5-10 minutes), then the key light comes on, the immobilizer recognizes my key and the engine starts. Anyone have any ideas?

2001 TL, 213,000 miles
