I bought this car and it has only started no probs a couple of times. The battery went flat which i replaced. I have have had the spark plugs cleaned and some wiring fixed up, I have lso replace the distributor with another 2nd hand one. There are sparks from it (so not distributor prob) and the engine cranks, but it just wont actually start. It didnt come with any books or manuals....... does this type of car come with an immobilizer stock standard at all? its an ae112r seca ascent

Crankshaft position sensor maybe , throttle position sensor , coolant temp. sensor etc.... It could be a lot of thing's . Instead of buying this part an that part ,take it an have it diagnosed . To a good ASE certified repair shop . Unless you like buying unneeded parts .
Here are trouble shooting tips.
Most common answers you will hear, are it's the battery old or you may just need to check and clean the terminals for a good connection. Can take battery to local car parts place and have them check it.
Alternator - but if you have headlights working and they are not real dim its probably not.
Starter - but if the engine is cranking, prob. not.
you have lost the immobilizer code. have you tried ignition to number 2 with lights on and press fob to lock then unlock doors. then try to start the engine. a flat battery for to long can wipe the code of the fob and ecu link if the battery has been off or flat for a to long period. only way to repair lost codes is a tec2 and your pass code for your vehicle. and if you dont have the pass code it can cost a fair bit to get the code from a dealer as they keep them on file for years then they get put back to back up after then and can take a bit of finding. if you battery in the future if you have a battery fail its best to put a good battery on again as soon as posible to stop this happening again.
the engine (there are more than one engine) has a distributor. "have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs" this can mean only 2 things. 1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh? 2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark lands on each wire term. if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.
not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel. Do you have this warning symbol lightning on the dashboard?
This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.
From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.
Use another ignition key that you have, and start the engine.
You will need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.
2000 its aftermarket two ways remove the alarm and do away with it or find the switch to turn it off its either a small red button you press as you crank to start the engine or its a small micro switch. Better yet remove it. go under the dash you will have to remove the panel to access the relay find where the aftermarket alarm installer spliced into the ignition switch follow the wire colors thhere cut it and restore it back the way it was two colors from ignition will now match there use a but connection or solder the wire back together and wrap electrical tape to protect it from shorting out.or you can just drive it to a shop that know how to repair and remove the alarm you need two person . some one in the car and someone direct the starter by jumping the solenoid to battery with thhe ignition in the on position and someone in the vehicle so it doesnt take off and run you over
