My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

From what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the immobilizer system on your model here.If you have not had the fault codes checked/read out at all this needs done to see what codes are set.Once this has been done any codes set need diagnosed to help locate and repair the fault here.This needs done with a scan tool that is fully compatible with your model to read all computers for codes.

I have seen the immobilizer that reads the key fail needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
