Help GTV Not firing

Hi, disconnected the battery on my P reg gtv now it wont start again.
Though the engine turns over, it wont fire.
Tried resetting the fuel pump and that didnt work so im guessing its an immobiliser problem, but the thing is I only have the red key without the badge. I've looked at previous threads and noticed the code reader, but on returning to England after my tour, if that doesnt work where do I find the code to put in an emergency start and does the emergency start reset everything?

Re: GTV Not firing

Hey Mate,
The emergency key will work. I have had to use it as i left my normal key (with badge and remote) in my dads car.

Car starts like normal with emergency key. So may not be an immobilizer problem.

Re: GTV Not firing

I could be wrong but it sounds like you don't have the emergency key.
If you don't then there are many horror sotries about needing a new ecu and code - but I have also heard that it has started working again after disconnecting and reconnecting the battery 3 or 4 times. So if I were you I would give that a go first.
Also I think you can disconnect the actual code sender box and that resets it and sometimes makes it work again. Do a search on here and you should find what I am on about
Good luck
