your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.
More than likely its your ignition switch going or gone bad. Ok, here's what you do, turn the key to the on position but DO NOT CRANK, let the key stay in this position until the security light stops flashing (takes 5 to 10 minutes) then turn the key off and crank it immediately after. If your car cranks then you will need to replace your ignition switch ($120 to $160). Hope this information helps someone. .
Does the security light in the dash blink? Thinking it's a pass code fault(ignition switch) There is no chip in the key,the computer looks for the proper rotation of the switch,had the same thing happen, Should be able to start it if you crank the engine for a few seconds,release the starter and DON"T turn the key off,wait 10 minutes,crank it again,should start. If not do the procedure again(had to do it 3 times on mine) This is the relearn procedure that also has to be run after the switch is replaced(with a new key also)
You need to leave the charger on while the alarm is going off and put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off 5 times the alarm should turn off . Don't try to start it just turn it on till the light in the dash come on the turn it . 3 to 5 time of this should reset the alarm.
