Corsa's do turn over if the immobiliser is buggered Mark.
They will usually start and then cut out straight away.

Open up your key and see if there is a chip in it. Sounds like an immobiliser problem to me.

opened key up and if its the little grey thing about 1cm long then yes it has a chip. Is there anyway i can reset it myself because if it has to go to vauxhall thats another problem.

You may possibly have to get another ecu and key chip if it is that at fault. It's a cheaper option then going to Vauxhall.

There is no way of getting around the immobiliser.

Don't get one from breakers yard, they will charge too much. Look on ebay, they can be bought for around £10.
You'll need to get a matching chip and ecu.

i will think before typing in future:eek:

my car doesnt turn over when the immobilizer is activated. Just get a beep an thats it. Tried running a paperclip test to see if it throws up any fault codes?
