Have you checked the fuses for the central locking e.t.c.?

And was the last thing you did before you went back to the car and it wouldn't start was go in the boot?

If so then check your boot wiring, it is common for breaking at the hinge, then the wires can short out.

hi ronnie will check fuses and wire in boot but would that stop the car from starting,ie will this confuse alarm immobiliser to not allow the car to start if fuse for central locking or wiring has broken
