Master Tech Matt :

I am not sure exactly what your problem is, if the car does not start, simply inserting the key in the ignition and turning it will reset everything and allow the vehicle to start. This assumes you do not have any kind of add on aftermarket systems.

Master Tech Matt :

Can I help you further?

Hello, Here's something to try. Take the ignition key and close all the doors. Lock the drivers door for about 10 seconds. Then unlock the drivers door with the key. It's possible you have an antennae ring going bad. Or key chip. But try that first.
