    Engine management light flashing turning over no start

    Ok went to start the car this morning and the car is trying to turn over but won't start and the engine management light has began flashing, by the way there's enough fuel in the car. The last time I ran the car was last week and no lights or signs of anything wrong back then. I've ruled out it being the starter motor by the fact it's turning over. I'm curious as to why the engine management light is flashing and not a constant light. Any input from you guys as to what you think could be wrong?

    Some details of the car if this helps:

    2001 1.8 SXI (Z18XE), just hit 90000 miles.

    your immobilser is dead. The flashing EML means you've got an Immobilser fault.

    As said, sounds like a immobiliser fault, have you changed keys, dropped your keys at all ?
    If the chip falls out of your key this would happen, the amount of people who have this problem after changing the battery or playing with there key is quite suprising

    Dave, what did you mean by 'IMMOBILIZER DEAD'?
