I've also attached a piccy of the fuse box to the bottom right of the steering wheel - definitely no OBDII socket, I've had my head in there searching for it - its not under the bonnet release latch either

That looks like the socket on a mk1, so you will need to get onto autolink and buy one of the flash tests devices.

I could be wrong ?

Hooked up the electronic diagnosis LED kit that was kindly sent to me (thanks!) and did not read any flashes. The diode just stayed lit.

I am confident that it was correctly set up with a bridge over GND & TEN and the diode over FEN (-ve) & +B (+ve). Key turned half way (no ignition). No flashes, just solid light until it was turned off.

Here is a picture of the set up incase any of you guys can see an obvious mistake?

Reading through the info pack I see it says 'Diagnosis of a faulty immobiliser is beyond the scope of this manual...' so I was unsure what to expect from carrying out the test, seeing as the initial garage initially told me that it is likely an immob fault.

I do not feel any closer to getting her back on the road - is there anything else I can try before spending loads of £££s??

Mechanicals are my 1st choice as I despair at auto rlectrics, I leave the diagnostics to my mate but from what I have read so far would support your view in an immoboliser fault.

Mm is your man but the distance from Mm HQ doesnt help.
