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.

Renault Kangoo 1.9d immobilizer light not swichting off/non start fault codes indicate df014 and df004 A second hand motor was fitted

The code in the key could be the problem. Sometimes they get weak.
try taking of the plastic cover around the key barrel and you should see a plastic ring around the key barrel, try sliding it close to the key if it then works it means it's the key needing replacement

yes i know what these cars are like ,a right pain in the you know where and the only solution is to calkl a truck and have it taken to the dealer ,its a europeon vehicle and uses encrypted software ,Now on earlier models you still get a spark and the immobilisor only shuts of the fuel pump so if you try running a hot wire direct to the fuel pump it should start anyway ,check for polarity on the sender unit where the fuel pump is ,access can be gained from under teh back seat on this vehicle ,if you do have to have it re-programmed then once its running with teh key cut the thrid wire on the immobilisor reader in the drivers side footwell with teh engine running and then it thinks it still has the key in the ignition .I HATE RENAULTS
