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.

No just one key no buttons on it

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.
