Interesting problem.. since not US spec. Is there a 'remote keyless (fob)' programmed for this vehicle? That's the only way to DE-arm the immobilizer (anti-theft) feature (based on US specs). Unless you have this key fob (keyless entry remote... which must also be programmed for this vehicle), the only other way is wait 5 minutes with the existing key in the ignition, then it should start (US specs). You will still need to have an 'ACTIVE' keyless remote programmed for this vehicle... otherwise, you'll continue to run into this problem.

1-insert and remove key from ignition two times
2-close and open driver door two times
3-insert and remove key once from ign.
4-close and open drvr door twice
5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door
6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.
7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.
8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second
9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.
You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works

SOURCE: reset immobiliser
System malfunction: Immobilizer warning lamp remains ON or flashes rapidly. Key added or replaced.
Within 10 seconds: Obtain 2 programmed keys (A and B). Insert key A into ignition switch. Turn ignition switch to position II. Switch ignition OFF. Remove key A. Insert key B into ignition switch. Turn ignition switch to position II. Switch ignition OFF. Remove key B. Programming mode now activated. Within 20 seconds: Insert key to be programmed into ignition switch. Turn ignition switch to position II. Switch ignition OFF. Remove key. Repeat above procedure to program remaining keys. Using new programmed key, switch ignition ON and start engine. If engine does not start and immobilizer warning lamp flashes: Repeat programming procedure. Keys can also be programmed using diagnostic equipment.
NOTE: A maximum of 8 keys can be programmed, including a maximum of 4 with remote control. NOTE: If the system is in spare key programming 'disabled' mode, the above procedure will not work. Diagnostic equipment will be required to change to spare key programming 'enabled' mode.

did you try the spare key? are you sure it is an immobilizer light? what does the warning light look like, can you describe it? replacing the battery in the key will not help as it is not needed for the recognition of the key(this is done by an induced current).
