Hi, I went to start the car and the immobilizer has kicked in. I had driven it 30 minutes prior then after I stopped the car I clear the interior wiping down everything and think by pushing all random buttons while whipping has triggered it as the ignition was on. The car cranks bit won't start and the security light stays on solid when keys inserted and the engine light flashes. Any help would be most appreciative

Hello,

I would do a hard system reboot. remove the negative battery cable and hold it to the positive post for 1 minute then reconnect. This will discharge all capacitors so the system can come back online.
