Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There is a good chance the issue is with the electronic ignition switch or the key itself and the key isn't being validated. A scan tool would be needed for testing to know for sure but if you have a second key and it works then the problem is with the first key that didn't work.

Have you tried a second key?
