Try unlocking the car with the key and then pulling the battery. Leave the battery off for 10 mins or so and try it again. If not repeat but before you plug the battery back in remove the ecu chip so it for sure resets the computer. Make sure you put it back before hooking the battery back up or you may fry the chip while putting it back in.
