I've a Citroen berlingo. All the warning lights are on

Customer Question

Hi, I've a Citroen berlingo. All the warning lights are on and car won't start, dead slience. I bought a spare car key from a high St shop and tried to use this, ignition started but engine couldn't start. Then I found and used the correct car key and now nothing, as described above. Did I 'trigger' some immobiliser by using the spare key?
