That's because the ignition needs the chip that is integral to the key to start to car to deter theft. Time to get a new key from a local locksmith or dealer. Have your VIN handy.

Yup, need new keys and the car needs to be coded to them. The anti-theft system is preventing it from starting.

A car owner must always have a spare set of keys- now you will have to pay a mechanic to repair your car- not even a screwdriver can get around that-
