Immobiliser issue won't stop it cranking. Same with cam and crank sensor.

Remote Central locking won't work if the key battery is flat.

A bit of extra oil will soon leak out. Unless it's ten litres over full, in which case you might hydrolock the crank...

Basically, you have at least two issues that the new battery won't have caused.

Edited for clarity.

Have you tried re-sync the key fob re central locking   :-\
given the gear selector a wiggle to make sure it's in park , neutral  :-\

checked the fuses ?

has it been jump started with the terminals the wrong way  :-X

What lights are on dash when you try starting?  Lets deal with that problem first :).

Flashing spanner light suggests teh immobiliser isn't seeing transponder in key.
