You need to get the immobilizer reset. I am attaching instructions to do so. If it does not work right off, sometimes the immobilizer can be picky, you may need to go to a repair shop you will have to get someone with an OBD II scanner to clear the code for you. It does not take long and should not cost much.

Hi Thanks for that, unfortunately there is no 'fault code' on display, all clear on dash board.
Thanks

Even if there is no dash light on there still can be trouble code. You sometimes have to use a scanner to reset the imobilizer if the relearn procedure I gave you does not work.
