I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

Thank you,

Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

This is a typical immobilizer malfunction, all you can try is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes press the brake pedal for a few seconds then wait until the 10 minutes are up then reconnect the battery .
In some cases this will reset ,but mostly this is a immo problem and you will have to have the system reprogrammed.

You can have the car sent in to the dealer, or go the easier way and cheaper and get your local locksmith out to reset this problem for you ,he will come to you .
