I think I know the answer to this, but I'd like to run it by everybody...

I finally finished rebuilding the PH1 GTV engine today (several months after I started!), and after charging the battery in anticipation, the big moment came to switch the ignition on.

And....the Code light stayed on :rant:

I disconnected the battery again for half an hour or so, having been here before (, but no dice.

So, I tried cranking it to see how juicy the battery was and it wouldn't turn over at all (turns ok by hand though). Am I right in thinking that the immobiliser only disables the engine start, not the starter itself?

I suspect the battery is goosed. I'm charging another one overnight to see if if works with that one (although I think my battery charger is a bit poo).

Any thoughts are appreciated! :)
