That is strange. Did you replace the head gasket yourself or a local mechanic? If a mechanic, have them check their work.

Did the work myself, car runs great and I made double sure all ground wires are connected. I now believe it Is a problem with the immobilizer? Hooking up the OBD reader brings up the little green key icon that does not appear when it's not hooked up.
