i had the same thing happen to me. you have a smart key and there is a chip inside the key that must be read by the security skin in your ignition your car will start three times and if the chip is not presented to the security skin transducer then it will lock your ignition out so the car will not start. Two options one if you have a spare key use that and try turning the ignition on and leave the car set for 3-4 hours this will generally clear the lock out. If that does not work then you will need to get a new key from the dealer and have them flash your car's PCM or get the new blank key and call an area lock smith and have them reprogram your key and reset your antitheft module on your car.

Hi, I seem to have the same problem with my Corolla verso 2004. The steering lock doesn't disengage and the car won't start even though the immobiliser light stops flashing. Have you managed to get it sorted? Thanks
***** Update**** In the end I did manage to get my problem fixed. It had nothing to do with the key. The problem was a faulty connection in the immobiliser motor that sits on the steering column, It wouldn't disengage. Our mechanic checked and repaired the motor and now the car works fine. It's a very rare fault apparently.
check the solenoid on the starter sometimes you can take them
apart and clean and grease it and the starter apart and clean the windings make sure the bearings are good if hard to turn replace them etc
You might just need to reset it. Roll the drivers window down and close all the doors. Lock all the doors with the key ) turn the key to lock twice, The electric locks should lock all the doors. wail a few minutes and unlock and open the trunk with the key. relock the truck or just close it. unlock the drivers door with the key, twice. all the doors should unlock, get in and start the car. Now this does'nt always work. If it does'nt we'll make the system think it's running. Close and lock all the doors. open the hood and disconnect the battery, one ccable will be fine. wait a few minutes. Reach in though the open window and turn the key all the way on. Don't open the doors, go around and connect the battery hard so it does'nt jump or skip. Reach thought the window and start the car/ once it's running. turn it off remove the key and unlock the door from the inside and open the door ( as if you were inside.) get in and start the car and everything should be back to normal.
common problem the lock wears out and wont turn a replacement lock at auto parts store is about 100.00 dollars problem is if you have a transponder key the new lock comes with a plain key so when you change it the car wont start the way around this is what i did 2 months ago to my own car 1998 camry ( same car ) you need to take the bottom cover of the dash under the steering column off there is a little hole in the steering column under the key lock its a button up there your supposed to push when the key is in the on position but the problem is it wont turn so you have to drill it out its a hardned pin to prevent theft use a cobalt drill bit i think its 3/16 or close to it before you do this disconnect battery remove the little box from key lock under dash it has small phillips screws and the electrical ignition switch from the back of the ignition lock than drill till you can pop out the ignition lock you have to pop off the cover around the lock it has the green coil light in it when you turn on the key it lights thats the transponder coil for the computer now turn the key in the new lock on and slide it in reassemble everything connect battery turn key make sure it cranks but it you have anti theft key it wont start cut your old key apart carefully and take out the transponder chip cut a hole in the new key to glue in the chip and car will start now if you have transponder key you are looking at about 600.00 from dealer if you have a standard key its about 400.00 hope this helps
put everything back together that fell apart now open the hood and remove the red battery cable for about 20 minutes. Now reconnect the battery making sure its on solid now go stick the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position (dont start it) and let it set on like that for about 2 minutes. now turn it back off. Are any security warning lites on or blinking? if not give it a try now..i hope this worked. if the car will not start, you may have to take it to the dealer to get the theft deterent module reset. Can i get some good feedback if this worked? thanks.
