Will the shifter release from park with the ignition ON and foot on the brake? Any warning messages on?
Sorry for the delay.
Disconnect the negative battery terminal cable for about 10 minutes. Fully charge the battery then lock/unlock the vehicle using the key in the driver door. See if it will reset in case it is a security problem.

Try this test. Close all the doors and lower the driver side window. Lock the vehicle then reach in through the open window and open the door. The alarm should sound. Insert the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position. The alarm should stop. If it does not then the key is not being recognized. To stop the alarm lock and unlock the door using the key int he door lock cylinder. If the alarm does stop then we could have a starter problem or relay. Let me know.
Yes it could be a bad key or that reader exciter cool which is the part that goes around the ignition cylinder. Unfortunately there is no way to bypass the security. Let me know.
No there is no programming needed. All the exciter does is read the key frequency and sends this info to the key transponder module and ECM.
based on that reading then yes sounds like the problem is the ring.
