Your anti theft system is the problem most likely. Try the other key.

I had this just recently happen to me. I have a brand new battery (less than 3 months old). You need a new fusible link that attaches to the battery. It costs about 20.00 at the dealership. Takes less than 10 minutes to install. I replaced this after 12 years and car is cranking and working perfectly.
