Start up problems!

I was returning to my car last night to find my battery was flat due to me being a muppet and leaving my lights on.

I called out my friend to charge my battery with jumpleads. Im turned the ignition and it attempted to start up but cuts on after a while. I think this is something to do with the imboliser. It is now home and fully charge,

Does the computer when it logs to many problems lock out the car? I don't quite know what to do. Has anyone had this problem?

thanks very much!

It could be an anti-tamper mechanism. I know to reset the factory immobiliser you have to open all the doors and boot and leave the key in the ignition for 15 mins or something. I'm sure someone else will know the exact procedure.
