what steps have you tried to correct the problem? have you taken off your positive battery terminal for atleast 5 mins and reset the car? have you checked your voltage on your battery and made sure it read 14.1 volts? also the chip in the igition could be bad so it isnt reading the chip in the key... out of ideas on this one bud

Check the battery on the key! Try a spare key with no electronic features. Our Outback wouldn't start using the key with open/close and panic buttons, however it started right up with the plain spare key Turns out the battery inside the electronic key was dead
