    I'll assume your key has a computer chip in it. If the chip goes bad or is damaged the only thing you can do is get a new key recoded. for the vehicle.

    Try with another key...if still the same, possible issue with antitheft system.

    Do you have aftermarket alarm installed? if not, check battery terminals to make sure they're tight.
