Immobilisier misbehaving

Hi All,
Got an intermittent fault with my immobiliser. Sometimes when I try to start the car the code light stays on on the immobiliser doesn't disengage. Take the key out and try again and it works as it should, sometimes next try sometimes after a few tries. At the moment annoying rather than a major problem so hope it doesn't get any worse!
Get the same with key that came with the car and with the spare I had cut a few days ago so pretty sure it is the car rather than the key playing up. Anyone know what is going on?

This can be caused by the Immobilizer Aerial which is around the Ignition Barrel. People have " cured " this by moving the Steering Wheel up and down a few times, may be worth trying this to pinpoint the problem.

Of course the actual fault is usually a poor connection to the Aerial.

If you do a Search for this you'll find a lot of information about this fault.
