Sounds like either you key has lost sync with the cars immobiliser ssytem or fault with the transponder reader ring around the barrel..unless you have another key to verify if the fault occurs on both keys..the only option from this point on is to get plugged intoa scanner..and scan the immobliser module..and then bring up the live data on that module to see if the key is being "seen" or the immobliser is being shut down once its sense the transponder chip in the key or not this will determine that the reader coil is working and the key is likely at fault..
