So try this: from the inside manually lock the all the doors but the drivers, with key in hand exit the vehicle and using the key lock the drivers door, wait for the dome light to go out then wait at least another minute, then using the key unlock the drivers door and attempt the engine. If this don't work then the dealer is going to have to reprogram the security system, make sure you have all the keys so the dealer can make sure the system is operating properly.
