The immobiliser is run off the key blip,so if that doesn't work then the fuel pump won't cut in when you try and start it.I'm guessing the key plip works OK?
The wipers could be a bad earth connection.Do they work when the heater fan is switched on?.If so,then the earth connection in one the footwells is corroded.You can either try and find which connection is faulty(it details this on the forum elsewhere),or you can just run an earth lead from the wiper motor body to the car body somewhere.
It could be that other earth connections are faulty and this is causing your problem.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
