    Does the immobiliser go out when the key is put in the ignition. Does it stop flashing?
    When you turn the key to put all the dash lights on but not to turn the engine, can you hear a faint whine noise from the rear (would indicate the fuel pump working).
    The other common fault is a poor connection at the crankshaft sensor.

    On top of the gearbox where it meets the engine is a small metal bracket with 2 10mm bolts holding it on. You will see the wiring going to it. There is a small black plastic tube attached to the bracket and if you disconnect the plug from it, give it a spray with WD40 and refit then try. Usually sorts it.

    Come back if it fixes it or not.
