Hi Andrew .

If the key light is flashing when you put the key in the ignition is letting you know the system has not reconized the key you are using .

Try your spare key if this also flashes then you have a problem with the system and will need to call out a moble key smith to reprogram your keys for you .

This service will save you a lot of cash ,compared to the dealers ..

Please get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad service rating , so i can get back to you with further assistance with this issue or offer assistance with another expert .
