Volvo s40 starting problem

My volvo 240 2007 is not starting at all.
It was towed yesterday.

The dashboard sometimes is showing the following error messages:
Immobilizer
Steering problem repair required

I turn the key and sometimes is not doing anything, it seems that the battery is out.
Other times all the lights are turning on, but it is simply not starting.

The car is not always responding to the remote.
I already tried the immobilizer tip to lock/unlock the doors for 5 times, but still the car is not starting.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

SOURCE: immobilizer

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

Burning oil may be the cause of the rest. Bad PCV system? Worn rings? Bad valve guide seals? Fully describe how and when it burns oil.

You will definitely have to take it and have the light reset. Or you could try to take the Negative battery cable off for about 15 minutes, sometimes this will reset the computer.
