Hopefully i can help..

Normally the computer and immobiliser should re set when you reconnect so it shouldnt stop the car from starting,i note you do say the battery on it is flat..have you tried jump starting,depending of course how long the car has sat,that maybe one option before purchasing another battery.but as above it shouldnt effect the immobiliser system - of course they maybe other things to reset such as radio.electric windows,sunroof if fitted...
