456 Dead Immobilizer

Hi there y’all, hope someone can help me with this :

I left my 456 untouched for several months and today it wouldn’t start. The immobiliser seems to be the problem. When I press the button the fob doesn’t lock / unlock the veichle, nor it disarms the immobiliser (the red light keeps flashing). Even worse, as I turned the ignition key, the back of the driver’s seat came all the way up (making now nearly impossible to even sit in front of the wheel).o_O

The battery is fully charged, I am able to power lights, windows, radio etc. I tried changing the fob battery but had no joy.

I don’t know what to think, my only guess is that the immobiliser got damaged somehow (I recently moved to a new house and the piece of furniture containing the keys/remote fell to the ground several times (ouch!). Though I see no cracks on the fob maybe some of the circuits got disconnected (?).

Should I check the “S” relay? Only have one fob, no PIN and kinda starting to freak

I was going to suggest contacting Gobble but I see you're already in contact with him on the other forum. Good luck!

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
