That sounds like a problem with the Passkey2 security system. There are 15 different value resistors that are used in the keys.

..

Possibly the passlock2 sensor in the lock cylinder for the ignition is the problem. But it could, of course be something else in the system.

.

The only way to know is to check it with the Interrogator tool. Most lock smiths have one. When we get that problem in the field, and not having the tool we get a lock smith to come and check it, for about $85.

..

That is less than the dealership and that way there is no tow charge.
