It may sound obvious but are you waiting for the flashing light to go out before trying to start the engine mine does this and I only just realised that the immobolizer has to read and recognise the code before it will allow the engine to fire up..mine is fine now I watch the flashing light and only then turn the key to start the engine.

Hope this helps
