147 Immobilizer failure after rebuilding engine

Hi I have finished rebuilding my engine but when I put the key into the ignition I get an ASR Failure message (of which is something to do with the brakes, so Im not worried about this one) and an Immobilizer Failure Message of which means I cannot start the car! Can anyone point me out how to sort this?

Asr/ abs showing because you havnt driven the car yet , and as stated above probably an earthing fault.On several occaisions ive used an earth jump lead attached in various places within the engine bay to see if it helps find the missing earth.Changing the subject slightly Fiat Puntos have a similar problem after an engine change if the earths are not perfect and even an additional earth directly to the ecu the cars show a code light and wont start.
