That's because you're now using a key that the car doesn't recognize. The new key must be programmed into your car's security system. HTH. -Jim

Your Stratus has a transponder key. By using the key that came with the new lock your car doesn't recognize that new key. Unfortunately you'll have to have either the dealer or locksmith program it for you. Unless someone else here chimes in and knows how to program it. HTH. -Jim

going to the dealer; will that be expensive?
