Mini won't start / Immobiliser problem

Dear fellow mini 2 drivers,

I must congratulate you on your great forum it has helped me fixed the Power steering pump failure I had and had help on numerous other things saving a fortune.

I have now hit a new problem on my í03 plate mini one, which I havenít been able to find a thread on this forum.

I think this is an immobiliser problem but maybe somebody might be able to help.
Here goes;
The problem began when I was working on the exhaust and had the boot open for a number of hours, then when I went to shut the boot it would not open on the catch and can only be released by the manual pull. Also the offside rear indicator will not work.
The car will not start, it turns over and sparks but will not fire, which makes me, think that the fuel pump is immobilised. The first time this happened was when I was working on the exhaust and I was able to bump start the car and get it going again. Previous to the bump start I checked all the fuses and relays, disconnected the battery, and tried to do an ECU reset with the key, not sure if that worked.

This fault has happened again while I was working on the rear washers jets, so I had the boot up again for a period.
Now the car wonít even bump start. Iíve tried leaving the key in for a few hours to see if that did anything, I have also disconnected the battery but nothing seems to work.

Please can you help, does anybody have any ideas? Iím guessing I need to un-arm the immobiliser, does anybody know how to do this?

Best Regards,

Matt
