    Default Engine management light flashes

    I have a problem with my 2001 plated JS11 2.6 V6 vectra in that if i only have the engine running for a very short time (eg. move the car out of the garage and turn it off) It wont run the next time I start it, it just shuts down and the EM light flashes. If I switch the ignition off for a few minutes it will then start no worries. I have just had the alternator replaced as it wasn't charging the correct rate, but the problem seems to be still present.
    Any ideas on what it could be?
    Thanks for any assistance.

    Flashing ECU light indicates an immobiliser related problem.
