Insert the ignition key into the driver door lock. Turn the key counterclockwise. Turn the key clockwise to lock the door. Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock the door again. This will shut the alarm off and reset the system.

Are you trying to use a new or different key? If so it must be programmed into the "PASSKEY" system. Start the car with a known working key. Then shut it off and immediately remove that key and insert the new key to be programmed. Turn the ignition to the run position but do not start the engine. Watch the security light on the dash. When it goes off turn the ignition off then start the engine using the new key. The new key is now in the system. HTH. -Jim
