Great Wall Steed 2014: Why is the start immobilizer locked?

We have a 2014 Great Wall Steed double-cab. The engine is cranking, but the start immobilizer is locked. Fault codes are P0513 and P0430. What is the problem and how can it be solved?

P0513 is indicating a problem with the car’s ignition key, which should have the car’s VIN and skim PIN code to deactivate the immobiliser. If you have a spare key, try that. P0 430 indicates a problem with the catalytic converter. There are a number of possible causes for this, it could be fuel system problem, a clogged converter, or a damaged oxygen sensor. Take the car to a dealer and have it investigated.
