Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Unfortunately the key is only used to get into the vehicle when there is a power loss. If it says no key is detected then start by checking the vehicle battery. If it is low then this will occur. If it is fine then hold the FOB on the steering column to see if it detects it. If it does not then the antennae may have failed or the programming in the module has become corrupted, which is common in this vehicle. Please let me know if you need more help.
