Have you lost the little bit in the key for the immobiliser.

If you have a spare key, try that. If it works then maybe you have lost the immobiliser chip in the key.

I don't know if you are a member of the MSCC, if you are then in the December issue of Miscellany, Dave Wellings has a piece about keys and immobilisers, worth a read it could be related to your problem

Try charging the battery. One member on here found the immobiliser a little finicky about less than optimum battery volts.

Thread here

Can you give us more details on what the car is please.
Later cars have an immobiliser ring in the lock.
If the battery is low it may not work well.
As said search for the Dave Wellings thread on this

Here's Dave's thread on the subject
http://www.talkmorgan.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/539514/1
There is an issue with later Plus 4's. Try taking the key out of the ignition then rub the fob against the ignition barrel. This is usually sufficient to get the chip close enough to the induction loop to disable the immobiliser. Once the light goes out you have 30 seconds to insert the key and start the car.

Put the key in the ignition Paul. Don't turn it.

Put a battery conditioner on and the immobiliser will disarm in a few minutes.

PS - if my theory holds true, your Plus 4 will be 2016 onwards with an autophoretic coated chassis........
