The first thing that came to mind was a weak battery but you did a jump start and that failed. Is the battery voltage good at 12.6 volts?
The theft light remaining on or flashing while the key is on, normally means the code in the key chip is not being recognized. Di you try your spare key and do you have a diagnostic toll to check for codes?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Glad you got it resolved.
