Try hitting the dash where the smartlock module is (not sure in EF, above the handbrake in EB) while trying to start it. Or bypass smartlock. Or, I had a similar issue in my BA two weeks ago, turned out I'd just disturbed a badly corroded neg battery cable.

Double check all wires to both the positive and negative are hooked up.

Especially the negative. The falcons need a strong connection to the - terminal and the car wont start if its not 100%
