Car wont start - i think it related to the immobiliser

Hi all,

I got 1 X MY97 Impreza turbo uk

But,,,
I am having some problems MY97 Turbo, won't start, has been like this for weeks now, i did some checks and there was no fuel in the fuel fillter,so i have replacecd the fuel pump for walbro 225, and then found out the old one was working fine, then i have changed the Cam + Carank Sensor's for the black ones and, did the spark plugs the B6's and still nothing, recharged the battery getting 12.3- 12.6V on the meter, jump started the car still nothing, there does not seem to be any falt codes. still no fuel inn the fillter,

Then, i found the transponder immobiliser unit has 2x burnt out pins, the plastic around the pins is gone burnt, melted away and in the socket is burnt too,,,who thinks this could be the problem....??
As far as i know its the standard factory fitted immobliser, Gemel.

I havn't had i drive in weeks, and its doing my head in, you know how it is...

Any help will be much appreciated,
Thanks

Ian

Yep, it was the factory fitted one .... the conection for the fuel pump on the imobliser had burnt out, i found this out using a paper chip to 'brigde' the burnt out conection after spending on other things like a fuel pump....
