HI,

Ok, as it will start with yours but not your husbands key, as well as the relearn procedure will not work for his key, the transponder in the key has a failed and the key will need to be replaced.

If it were the control module or key antenna ring on the ignition, your key would not work.

So you will need to replace his key for this

HI,

Sorry, keyboard locked up

You can call around to your local locksmiths as most will carry the key and can cut and program it. From a locksmith, it will be around $100 - $125

From a dealer around $225
