clues please
« on: 23:49, Fri 03 June 2011 »
I have had my car off the road for about 2 weeks now to rebuild the bottom end,car built back up today but wont start,i have an immobiliser linked to an alarm,the fob activates all the electrics(they still work) and the immob cuts starter and pump(they are dead),its starts by running a live from pump and bumping it  but how can my car just pack up just by being sat,where should i be looking?

Could the alarm need resetting from being sat if the battery has been off?
I don't know anything about alarms, but it seems to be related if the imobiliser to me.
