have the ignition cylinder checked. if its worn out the theftlock system may not recognize the key and disable the starter. do-it-yourself: pop the hood and unplug every sensor you can access. wait 5 mins plug them back in (this will reset the theftlock system) and (quickly) try to start the car. if it starts, drive it to a mechanic
