Smile Newbie on board. seicento S 2001

Hi Folks,
Newbie here. Just joined the ranks of Fiat owners after decades in Alfas and 7 years in Saabs. Bought a met red, steel wheeled, 2001 Seicento S 1.1 all 54BHP worth.....cheap commuting miles I am hoping.

Any advice on parts service and general preventative maintenance welcomed.

Indeed the car won't start after a period of being without use. Battery died. Assuming immobilsier cicked in and needs Pos and Neg terminals touching, a new battery fitting and if that doesn't do it, look at replacing the CPS....or am I way off?

Chassis number ZFA 18700000636647 for those that need such info

Any and all advice welcomed. Looking forward to utilising the value of your collective knowledge.

All the best,

Matt

I only posted twice. Once as a newbie and second under technical forum.
