Sounds like you have the "PATS" anti-theift system. Probably a section in the manual about it. There is a RF chip in the key and must be programmed to the vehicle. Your most likely going to have to get the dealer to reprogram you vehicle to accept the other key's RF signal. Once you have one key that works (two for the PATS-2 system) you can add/program more keys yourself.
