Just a thought, maybe a main, central fuseable link needs a look.

That's possible. You may wanna look into resetting the controller fob.

Check your fuses 1st if they are good, disconnect the batt for 20 mins brown lead only.

There is a main fusible (misspelled it) link, maybe a look at realoem.com or Google can help you find and check it.

If the imobilizer had cut in when putting a new battery on it would have re-set itself. so as I asked do you have dash lights and why did the batt go dead in the 1st place ???

That will leave the starter motor, is the car a manual?? if it is 3rd or 4th gear and give it a rock back and forward a couple of times about 2-3ft.
