Hi Alex,
If my memory serves me correctly this denotes that an incorrect security code has been entered three times. If that is the case then you have to leave the car with the ignition ON for 30 minutes before trying again.

Sounds like a good reason not to stall on a level crossing ;-)

I will try what you said steve, but i know this already and i havnt put in the code wrongly in 3 times! It is a strange thing in where i get in the car and i havnt put any codes in the car yet, i turn the ignition on and sometimes both lights come on. I then, switch it off and then turn it back on. I normally have to do that several times before it just goes on the red light and you put the code in and then then the green light comes on and it starts!
Does this help with any advice anyone could give me!

Once you've got the car started prize out the console and unplug it. Then you never need to enter the code again. Replace it to keep the look of the thing.
