Sounds like the security system somehow has been activated. Try running the shut down procedure listed in the owners manual. If that won't work then the system my need to be reflashed, usually this happens if the power supply is interrupted without using a saver tool. Can't be sure that is what happened to yours but it sure sounds like it.

had someone come out to my car to reprogram my key but he said that it has nothing to do with the key or the security system he says its electrical and needs to go to a shop to be diagnosed.. i really dont wanna spend that kind of money to have it diagnosed.. that gets way too expensive way too fast.. any ideas where to start looking?

Got the problem solved. The passenger rear door wiring harness split and had some bare wires thet shorted against the body causing the computer to shut down. Replaced harness and all is well again
