Quite commonly on this car the camshaft or crankshaft sensor are to blame, it is very difficult to say without a diagnostic code. If you can get the car to a independant garage or a mobile mechanic to get the fault code from the computer I can tell you exactly what the issue is. I would try this route first as it will only cost you about £50, once I know what the fault is I can tell you how to fix it also.
Another alternative is the cars immobiliser, to remedy this disconnect the car battery overnight if possible or at least for a few hours, then reconnect in this order red first then black. see if that resets the ompuetr this often does the job.
Hope this helps

Have the same problem.
It looks like the computer of the vehicle lost the key-code. (chip in the key with a code)
Apparentely the computer of the vehicle will lose that code after being disconected from the batterie more then a month.

Check fluid levels, make sure radiator cap is on tight, checks hoses to assure all good. And keep in mind, although new thermostat, it could still be faulty. (not likely, but a thought).

When the fuel pump was replaced it is important that you install a new fuel filter as it is necessary to have a clean filtered fuel into the pump. Also check the injectors and the spark plugs.
If the spark intensity is low check the HT COILS and the ignition system triggers to the HT coils.
If spark is good then the fuel pressure and calibration must solve the issue.
Take help for consensus.
Thank you for using fixya.
