SOURCE: diesel engine wont start will
i had this problem and again it was narrowed down to the immobiliser. however it wasnt exactly the immobiliser it was the immobiliser coil. it sits around the key slot and it is the radio part that check the chip inside the key. got mine replaced and it starts first time every time now. it cost £35 to replace.

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

This is going to be dealer specific. The dealer has to put it on their computer to clear these theft codes. For some reason the cars computer thinks that someone is trying to steal the car. And there is no bypass. On the older security systems you could bypass it and still start the car. But the newer ones 1995 and newer they got them to where you can't bypass them.
