Turns over but won't start

I was adding a radar detector to my 2010 cooper clubman s and now it won't start. Turns over fine but no start. I tried both keys but no luck. Is there something I can reset?

Thanks

Happy New Year

I noticed while the key is in the ignition and I'm trying to start it, the dash shows a picture of a yellow key. Is this normal ?

sound like an immobliser fault..

which if the say was caused by your installation of the detector,they could charge you for the tow & fault diagnosis and correction of the fault..
