Are you sure its the immobiliser thats causing the problem ? Seems strange that it starts with a tow but not on the key. These cars seem to suffer from starting problems when using the key. Does the Immob light go out or is it on all the time or flashing ?. People have had problems where they have had to use the hand prime bulb by the filter to prime the system before it will start on the key. How many miles has it done? Service history etc.

your starting prob if it only starts with a tow is probably a fuel fault.you can sometimes start it if you squeeze the primer beside the fuel filter while cranking the engine
make sure the primer is "hard" before you try starting if not its an air leak
the reason it starts with a tow is that you are turning the lift pump (inside the the high pressure pump) faster when in gear. this is quite common on sedona

immo light should come on and car will start. if it wont start with key but will if towed it is definatly not an immo prob.if immo light does not come on then its usually an antenna(round key) and immo unit
