Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

From what you are describing the is a ignition switch issue,the ignition switch and the ecu are not communicating properly together and therefor causing the issue that you are having.To correct this issue the ignition switch would need to be replaced.

Would this problem arise from the Immobliser ?

The particular issue that you are having would likely not be caused by a immobilizer issue and more so from the ignition switch.
