The vehicle thinks it's being stolen. Try this. With the power door locks in the open position, disconnect the battery for about a half hour. That will clear the computer. Reconnect the battery, start the car, lock the doors. Go for a 15 minutes ride. Shut the engine off. Unlock the doors and then remove the key. That MAY or MAY NOT work. Good luck.
