Other keys? Your key is chipped to programmed to the ignition, if you don't use a proper one the antitheft will keep it from starting/running. Call a locksmith or your dealer to procure a new set of keys.

yep what tom said is true. A new key at the dealer is roughly 300$. so its either find that key or go shill out the cash for a new key.
