Hello, this means the transponder in the head of your husbands key has become faulty. You will need to purchase a new key and program it to the vehicle. I'll post more below on how the theft deterrent system operates.

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
