I to am having the same problem on my 2002 petrol model. I don't think the immobiliser is the issue - the immobiliser works off the key from a sensor around the ignition barrel. If you put the key in and the red light stops flashing on the dash the immobiliser is fine. The symptoms you describe are identical to mine. All my connections are tight and it can only be the starter or starter solenoid.
Your radio code should be on a sticker on the inner of the front cover of your service record. If it isn't the supplying dealer may have it on record and will tell you over the phone.
Thankfully I got a 2 year warranty with mine when I got it last May so its going in to the dealer so we can argue about wear and tear and if its covered or not!
