got the dreaded Key Error last night.
I eventually got it started after opening and closing the doors while alarmed, setting alarm off and then shutting off alarm.

Was stranded in a parking lot late at nighrt for 20 minutes with my son= not cool.

I looked in the sticky and did not see any posts.

What is up- ignition switch replacement?
It has subsequently started with no problems 3 times.

Maybe you need an update? Or maybe the battery in the key is going. Or maybe it was a hickup

do not believe the key battery is involved in startup- just a passive chip.
Key batt is only for unlock and lock etc. remotely

Okay but you should still check for an update at the dealer... and sometimes hiccups do happen.
Well I know with my car "which has keyless entry and keyless start. If my key battery dies I can't do anything with my car unless I use the laser cut key.
