Hi I'm Kevin. The immobiliser light flashing indicates that the immobiliser hasn't accepted the key so it is likely the car has lost the code for the key. If you have a spare key have you tried ?
The immobiliser can be 'unlocked' just ONCE as follows:1. If engine will not start -2. Remove ALL possible sources of interference from the key ring i.e. bare key only3. switch ignition on for 5 secs4. switch off for 5 secs5. repeat these last 2 steps again6. if engine now starts the problem is interference - make sure you only have one fob near the ignition at any time7. if non start try this - 8. check immobiliser light - flashes 6 times then remains on constantly9. switch ignition on and wait 15 MINUTES10. ensure the immobiliser warning light goes out11. start carTHIS METHOD WILL WORK ONLY ONCE. PLEASE ENSURE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS BEFORE TRYING ITIf it works, drive straight to garage with programming kit or to dealer. DO NOT SWITCH THE IGNITION OFF UNTIL THE CAR IS AT GARAGE
