First try another key that is programmed to the vehicle (if available). If another key starts the vehicle normally, the original key is damaged and will need to be replaced.

If no other keys are available, two new keys would need to be cut and programmed to the vehicle. The programming would have to be done with a factory scanner or pass-thru device capable of entering the security access.

Do you have another key you could try?

I just wanted to check whether you still need help with this issue.

Please let me know if you do.
