Also make sure to check the battery connections. Sometimes if they aren't tightened down enough, they can wiggle loose

uncle frank says disable the security system, not without being a droid geek with a bag of equipment and tools,thats why its security manufactures do better than let you just pull a fuse and steal a car. told ya unhook the bat neg for 10 min, connect and work all locks,let key in ignition 10 min. while turned on. beat on the hood, try everything, no luck, then the chip in key just aint connecting the close range signal to the body control module .maybe a bad ing. switch. .
