Yes. I agree. Did you get 2 sets of keys? If so, try the other key. Hopeful the chip in the key your using is the problem.

Here's my chicken soup answer. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour. Be sure that you have the key in your pocket and the code for the radio. That MIGHT reset the anti theft system. It has in the past. I call it the Chicken Soup approach because it couldn't hurt.
