Engine immobilizer

API calls to read the state of immobilizer and to set the new state. Engine immobilizer is an electronic security device fitted to a motor vehicle that prevents the engine from running unless it must run. This prevents the vehicle from being "hot wired" after entry has been achieved and thus reduces motor vehicle theft. This API call allows manipulating with immobilizer state.
