    You need to get it scanned for fault codes first to see if something comes up? I've changed batteries 4 times on my S3 in the last 12 years, never had this problem.

    I don't have scanner near by can it's be the immobilizer?

    If it's the immobiliser, the key symbol would flash or stay on the dash display.

    That would point to an immobiliser issue then, no spare key to test the theory?
