COBRA 8510 IMMOBILISER

I have a 2003 Kia Sedona which has the Cobra 8510 factory fitted immobiliser, I think it has failed as the LED light is not flashing as though no power is getting to it. I can't start my car as a result. Usuakky when I turn the ignition key and press the fob into the LED port the dash lights come on and I can start the car. Since the LED has stopped flashing my dash is not lighting when i try to start the car. It is not my battery as the radio and lights etc are working fine. other lights on the dash are also working such as door open light and others not connected to starting up. I have checked fuses inside and out and all are ok, I have also located another fuse behind the dash which is connected to the immobilser wiring. This fault occurred all of a sudden as though a fuse blew but all seem fine. Can the immobilser be disconnected so car will start? If i fit a new one will the car key have to programmed to it. Any ideas welcome.

To check to see if the immobiliser is causing the car not to start there is a small red LED in the centre of the instrument panel normally with the Car locked the LED light should be flashing everyone second this is normal behaviour, Now with the key in the ignition and ignition on normally the led light will go out giving the immobiliser authorisation to start if in this procedure the LED light is flashing rapidly then there is a problem with most likely the key if you have a second key I suggest you test it,
