Hi, my name is***** sounds like you may have a faulty key. The symptoms are typical of an anti theft problem when the key is not being recognized. If you have a spare key you should give it a try. The problem can also be caused by a fault with the transponder in the dash that reads the key information when inserted into the ignition.

Let me know how you make out.
