Car won't start doors will not unlock and can't put car into gear
I tried starting my car and it failed. When I turn the key all the lights in the car start to flash. My automatic door locks will not work and I could not put into gear. The radio showed code. Of course the car would not start.

It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.
Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.
Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-
put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.
Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.
If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.
spare key may be a valet key and will not turn off security, try locking the doors and using the key in outside lock -unlock, or unlock and hold, double tap. play with it a bit each manufacture makes there own little tricks, good luck
There are 2 things to try: 1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system. 2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.
i believe if you put key in ignition turn it forward and back off twice it should reset the anti theft to start it. or unlock pass door with key and that might reset it. also try the same with back pass door if the other didnt work. hope this helps.
Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps. Thanks, Joey
Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.
Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.
If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss
