Engine turning over but not starting

Hi folks,

I have a 2002 Scenic 1.6 Petrol automatic.

The battery ran low because I had not used the car for a month. I took the battery out and charged it and reinstalled it. Now the engine will turn over on but the car does not start.
I have checked every fuse in the car, and added petrol just in case, and pressed the fuel cut off reset button, and still no change.

Is this an imobilliser problem?
If it is, then should the engine turn over on battery power even when the imobilliser is tripped?

Hi Wolfhound - as the names suggests the "immobilser" is to prevent the engine starting - it will turn over but not fire up. Is the immobilser light on the dash changing when you insert the key.
