quick update 

after leaving overnight with the battery disconnected, went back with one of our works mechanics, connected everything up tried the key ...no luck same issue. 

so tried the spare key I'd picked up on the way !Removed!  thing fired up first time!!!  so whilst the engine was running  quickly went back to work (and safety) tried both keys again only the spare worked 

changed the key fob battery whilst the mechanics plugged in a code reader 

both keys worked..........as simple as a key fob battery!!!!!🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️😂😂😂
