you need to clean the key to make sure that it can be read by the computer, and you need to wait 10 min., not 3 to try it again- that allows the security system to reset- the key has a resistance chip in it, and if it gets dirty, the computer can't read it, so the car can't be driven or even attempt to start it for 10 min.
