    Hi. Lancer 98 ce hatch. My battery went flat. So replaced. Now it won't start. Got fuel to rail. Checked fuses under bonnet and relays near radio. They OK. Got spark. Got no injector pulse. Pulled radio out and immobiliser is hot. So since car been off thinking its suckin power and that's why battery went flat. So what I got to replace.. Or fix. Do I really got to replace my key and locks and ecu? And... ???no clue. I'm not 100% that its the problem just running out of options and something got to have flattened the old battery.. Cause i charged and seeems ok.. Thanks Judy.. Should I try to beg a code reader to read it.. Would that help? Would it tell me anything

    Hi Judy,

    One quick way to check if its ECU or Immobiliser, is to turn the car on to Ignition (but dont start the car). In a normal working car the Check Engine Light will appear for about 2-4seconds, and then disappear. If the immobiliser is faulty, the Check Engine Light will flash off after those 2-4 seconds, and then reappear and stay on.
