Chaps, I'm at that point now where I'd like to fire the old girl up for the first time in circa 3-4 yrs.

I have a brand new battery full of charge and connected her up, now my car has the PA1000 Alarm system so all fairly standard.

When I connected the battery, everything seemed normal enough, however the flashers are going, and keep going for about a minute or so. No big deal I'm guessing it's doing some sort of initialisation, however when I turn the key I get nothing, also the fuel pump is not priming (in cannot hear it).

I'm guessing the car has an immobiliser and this is preventing start-up?, I know my fob is dead and requires a new battery, which I will pickup today.

Any other pointers chaps?.

Appreciate any knowledge you can pass on re: this subject.

Cheers
Trev

Certainly sounds like the key fob battery needs replacing, it won't start unless you press the button first, then you only have a certain amount of time to start the car before it resets.

Very important to remove the DME Relay and spin the engine over to build the oil pressure before you start the car.
Remove it, spin over for 10-15 secs a couple of times until the oil pressure builds, then replace it and start the car.
You may find that you have a tappet that is sticking after all this time (oil drains out as they are hydraulic), if so, then a short drive should re-charge it with oil.

Suggest some fresh oil and filters as soon as you can, as it will have degraded over that time.

Good luck, Nick

Thanks Nick that sounds perfect, yes the engine has had a thorough overhaul whilst out so everything should be spot on, but you never know as you say.

I'll grab a battery and see how I get on...
