    Anyhoo my diagnosis is the EWS module has kicked in (immobiliser)

    Only way to i got to solve it was through the INPA car diagnostic program

    I personally would of walked away the second i heard that the main key does not work cos the locks had been changed :o

    I still think ur key(whatever form it is in) is not talking to the transponder in the ignition barrel which has been de-synced with the immobiliser

    Probly since u dissconected the battery and lost all reserve charge from the electronics
