    I did a quick google search and it came up with a Engine Start Blocked by Immobilizer.

    Didn't you say you had a problem with your alarm one night?

    It could of picked that up and displayed that as a fault

    Mine as done a 18010 due to the battery been run flat or charged so it picks that up as a fault and sore's it.
