Try this: lock all the doors manually except the drivers door, using the key close the drivers door and lock it, wait at least 30 seconds, then using the key unlock the drivers door, if this doesn't work try using the passenger door, if it still won't work then there is a possabality of a failed door switch in one of the doors and it will take a professional to check out the security system to locate what one or more are sending the wrong signal.
