If your green immobilizer light is rapidly blinking , then as you said , it's not recognizing your key(s). Receiver unit may have failed or bad connection in circuit. ANY aftermarket add-ons? alarm/remote start?

Nothing aftermarket on the car..But the passenger cabin is very humid..this happened after 2 days under heavy rain..Should i try to spray all fuse boxes with a spray for hummidity?Should i also check the battery...I think it must be 3 years old now..But seems in very good condition..All lights act as normal etc...Does the battery have to do with such problems?

YES , low voltage can set all sorts of 'false codes' . Try disconnecting the battery and put on a slow charge (10Amps or less) for 3-4 hours and then reconnect and try. In the meantime , along with your statement about the humidity, if corrosion/increased resistance in circuits is an issue then , if you have any way of warming and drying the pass. cabin , that would possibly help. ///////////.........12/10........In addition , to answer your question about how to reset the PCM....... TRY a 'hard' reset- disconnect both battery cables and hold them together for about 1/2 minute. IF your radio is anti-theft type , then you'll need the code for that afterwards. Again , make sure battery is fully charged , hook it back up and try it. Please post results.

I think we will have to get a little more info like does it have spark and fuel pressure

Yes everything seems to be ok.the engine cranks but won't start as the immobilizer doesn't seem to recognize the key.tried both keys i have for the car.i had the same problem 3 years ago and remember got solved by removing a fuse and puting it back in.just dont remember which one..i think it might be water in some of the was extremely rainy here 2 days...will it help if i just use a spray for humidity and spray the fuse box..just to mention that some lights of the dashboard dont work also..and the green key light on dashboard keeps blinking..

Possibly the PCM fuse? maybe you just reset it.
