sounds like the transponder went bad. Even the normal keys (w/out buttons) have a chip that's encoded to the car. If the encoding or chip goes bad, the engine won't crank.

Ironically- I just bought a new key from the dealer and it didn't "crank" so they had to order another new one. I picked it up saturday and again- nothing. All the lights work and it turns but in the crank position- nothing.

Upset that this is now the 3rd trip to the dealer- and still no working second key... I try it one last time out of desperation and it works. Why? I have no clue. BUT- I'm not sure I trust it and have tried a dozen times since then and once it started working, it hasn't stopped. - go figure.
