Default 08' V50 2.0d starting problems

Morning all,

Have had my v50 for a few months now and all was going well until I stopped using it as much in the week and went to start it.

It would crank over for ages until it would finally start and once started it was then easy to start again and again until left for a day and I was back to square one.

I asked a friend who has a s40 with the same engine and he said the throttle body can cause issues, and could do with a clean.

Days later I have again tried starting with no prevail, so I removed the Tb and cleaned it. I've then got to start again and it appears the battery has gone flat from cranking so much and now have a message on the dash saying 'immobiliser try start again'.

The car unlocks with both keys, lights come on radio works, everything but the engine cranking.

Ive checked the plugs on the cem in the passenger footwell, I've banged the key a few times with the handle of a paint brush lol I've taken the Tb off again and tapered the edges as I think this was the initial problem.

Could anybody shed any light as it's pi**ING me right off.
