You can't , and rather then just thinking it's the immobilizer you need to know for sure ! Is there any light's lit on the dash flashing when you try to start the vehicle ,or a light - Security , a key an lock symbol ? If not I wouldn't think it's a anti-theft system problem ! Before you start replacing parts needlessly an chopping into wiring harness , I suggest you have it taken to a ASE certified repair facility !
In the manual there is a detail instruction on how to connect a battery to the fusebox to provide power to open the lid. Once the trunk is open you can start the car with some help from there. After you got your engine going there is a good chance that the emission light in the dashboard will come on (indicating an engine problem). In my experience there is no problem with the engine, but since the sensor was powered down I think it registers it wrongly. You can take it to the shop to reset the light and check emissions or you can do it with an OBDII tool yourself. If it comes on again then you should definitely take it to the shop. Also make sure you buy a new battery since they tend to get damaged if they are discharged completely.
It sounds very much like your battery is discharged, and does not have enough charge left to turn your engine over (the clicking noise is your solenoid trying to engage the starter, but it is not getting enough power to do so). The fact that your various little lights work does not indicate that you have nearly enough of a charge in the battery to start the car.
I think that if you have your battery charged (or replaced, if necessary), that will solve your problem. You might take the battery to Autozone or a place like it and have them check it for taking a charge (I don't think that charge for that).
What happens when you turn the key?... is there a clicking or clunking noise?... try tapping the starter and the solenoid that is attached to the starter and see if that helps. It may help if you have someone else turn the key while you tap on the starter and solenoid.
I have a crossfire and this has happened to me. When it has I have found that the divider, (for the lack of a better word) that is in the truck is not properly seated. Check to be sure it is all the way into the slot that it fits in, especially on the left side. When it is seated correctly the top will go down. Hope this helps.
