If the anti theft light remains ON, with the key in the ON position then your key is not being recognized.

This could be because teh key has lost it's registration and needs to be reprogrammed or because the NATS antennae connected to the ignition tumbler system has failed and cannot send key recognition to the immobiliser for ECm verification.
