    That signifies something is faulty in the engine immobiliser...

    Control indicator for immobiliser
    If control indicator illuminates when the ignition is switched on, the key is not recognised by the system and the engine cannot be started:

    1. Remove key .
    2. Reinsert key in starter switch.
    3. Repeat starting procedure.

    If the control indicator remains illuminated, try to start the engine using the spare key and consult a workshop.

    ECM? What's that? I'm guessing Electronic Control Module?, but which one. They don't mean the CIM do they? (Column Integration Module) - sits in the steering column and deals with a number of things including, I think, communicating with the chips in the keys.

    If it is that, hope you're under warranty as they aren't cheap.
