    Engine Problems

    Hi. I own a 2002 Astra Convertible 2.2,,, problems started when the battery went flat. and was diagnosed as an alternator failure, the car is now in the garage for this. whilst getting the car to the garage i stopped to get something from the petrol station hopped out, 2 mins later tried starting the car again nothing happens. it ticks over and wants to start but just wont even tried bump starting it to no success, the engine management light flashes at you whilst key is being turned to start (the outline of a car with a spanner going up through the middle on the dials) the garage advised me it could be the transmitters in the keys. both keys have been tried out and the car still wont start . Please could someone advise what the problem could be I'm thinking its the immobilisor due the the battery going flat one too many times ??
    any replies will be be much appreciated.

    Welcome

    I dont quite understand why your asking such a question....
    if
    You car is currently in the garage getting the alternator changed....
    and you have a flat battery..
    then
    Surely the garage will return your car to you working.??
    So why ask about keys/ignition/immobilsers etc?

    For what its worth, once you have a fully charged battery you car will most likely start okay with the keys etc.

    The garage cant start the car whatso eva, even with the car battery charged??? Becuase for the past week before car could get into garage ive been putting the car on charge each night just so i could get to and from work. then on the day i take the car to the garage the car wont start again after turning it off... the power is there from battery etc but it just wont start? all the elctrics come on etc even heated seats. just wont do the final thing and turn on and drive.
