Immobiliser code

pop to your local garage and get your car scanned and then cleared. Road test and check again, it may be a system glitch.
If fault returns you may have to do some further investigation.
I was unaware that immobilisers could be disconnected as the whole point is that they are Anti Theft and an integral part of the can system.

I have a versa 2011 it has a problem in some electric it is that the place in speedometer where it shows the milege there writes a message saying loose plz what does this mean

try disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 20 min then carefully refit. Do not leave your keys in the car!
If this ecu reset does not work you will need to pop into your local trusted garage and have them scan the diagnostic centre built into your car and see if you have a facia fault. These can be repaired and wiill take about a week. They are usually programmed and possibly part of the cars immobiliser system so do not fit a second hand unit unless you are good at reprogramming!

Mercedes key remote

you probably will not start the car as the immobiliser needs the key battery to transmit the code to allow the immobiliser to work correctly. Fit a new battery in the key fob and have it reprogrammed to the engine CPU.

Red immobiliser light flashing rapidly

a blown fuse will not emit a smell unless its blown violently, This means dead short, If you have a dead short that would explain the dead battery and the lack of co operation of the jumping it. Has the car got a system in it? this is going to have to be a large short to create what your describing

Battery problem

sounds like there is a dodgy earth or have you had a new stereo/electrical equipment fitted? could be that there is a fault in the electrics causing the power to drain, wouldnt say that it was the immobiliser though.
