You need to reprogram the key .... it may sound technical but it's really easy to do ~~ 1 Enter the vehicle, and close the driver's side door after you sit down. Make sure all of the doors are closed. Turn the key in the ignition so that the vehicle is running off the battery. Turn the key again to turn the vehicle off. 2 Press the "Unlock" button on the driver's side door, and continue to hold it as you place the key back into the ignition and remove it. Repeat this step three time while holding the "Unlock" button. 3 Release the "Unlock" button, and listen for a beeping sound to indicate that the vehicle has entered programming mode. 4 Press both the "Unlock" and "Lock" buttons on the key's controls, and hold them until you hear two beeps from the vehicle. Remove the key from the ignition to complete the programming process

The above may help program the door locks but will not do anything for the security light on the gauges.go to this site. This is the complete relearn procedure, it should reset in 10 mins. but could take a little more than 30 minutes but easy to do. Your ignition has 4 positions 1.Off 2.ACC 3.On 4.Start (Cranks over & springs back to 3.On) Step 1 – Attempt to start the vehicle, this is the "start" position. It will crank, and start for 1-2 seconds then stall. The security light will be on or flashing. Leave the key in the ‘on’ position for 10-11 minutes, then the security light will stay solid or go off. Step 2 – Turn the key to the ‘off’ position for no less 10 seconds. Attempt to start the vehicle. If it runs at this point then you have reset your passlock. If the problem persists you can continue repeat Step 1 two more times. Make sure turn the key to the ‘off’ position for 10 seconds before each 10 minute cycle. Hopefully your car is running by now Step 3 – The vehicle is now ready to relearn the proper code. Turn the key ‘off’ for 15 seconds and then ‘crank’ the vehicle. it should start back up now. The security light might stay on solid for several minutes afterwards.
