I think it may be the immobiliser but not sure. Anybody any ideas?

Having a similar problem myself, except im getting a clicking noise when I try to start(I have also tried jump starting). Ive been advised to check the connections on the starter and battery, make sure they are not corroded or loose. If they seem ok my next step is to remove the starter (somehow) and hopefully strip it down and clean it. If it still fails to work it will need replacing. There is some reasonably priced ones on ebay at the moment.
Hope this helps a little
