Ok if you press the unlock button on the key fob does it go away?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Do not have remote tx have key.
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.

That can be the issue. If you have a red LED light on the steering column this isn't factory. If there is a non factory alarm or remote start installed and you don't have the fob it will lock you out. The only way to unlock it is to remove it or get a new fob programmed.
