Hi John, Welcome to the Ford Owners Club - Have you tried using the other key, assuming that you have more than one?

Is the key transponder loop not located on the stearing column where the ingnition barrel would be if it had one. If it is try holding you keyfob near there and see if it starts.

Hi John, it sounds like you have a bit of a fault developing. You need to get the DTC fault codes and see whats going on.

The batteries in the keyfobs are nothing to do with the immobiliser, they are only for the remote lock/unlock. The immobliser chip inside the keyfob is a passive device which only transmits it's code when its within range of the cars transponder areial.
