i think so. that it could be push started means that the ignition/power/trinary switch, spark control, fuel delivery and ecu controls all work. I'm not too familiar with the immobilizer, but a look at the wiring diagram should tell you if the car can run while supposedly immobilized. maybe the starter is the last remaining suspect?

that being said, i wouldn't jump to replacing it before putting a multimeter on its poles while trying to crank in order to confirm wiring continuity.
