The permanant red immobiliser light can mean a few things..

1: Defective keys.. and/or need re synchronised.. Un common

2: A defective Card reader.. Un common

3: The Coded steering column Lock has failed. This is a common & costly problem on Laguna II..
Unfortunately the lock must be smashed off the column, a new one fitted and reprogrammed. This is dealer only im afraid..
You probably don't want to watch this procedure being carried out tho as it looks very destructive, requiring a large bar and 7.5lb lump hammer!

My advice is to have the immobiliser fault codes read first to confirm the problem.. and get back to us..
