try this trick. Put your key in then turn it to power on (do Not attempt to start it) leave the key in that position for 15 minutes or more and then turn the key to Off position. Next try to start the vehicle. This works sometimes but some times it doesnt. if this does not work you need a lock smith or the dealer.
