Lost my original key so got out one of my spares the next time I wanted to use the car (which was a few days later), and now the car wont start. The battery is fine and I have over a 1/4 tank of gas. The engine turns over but won't ignite. The keys I have are 'plain', i.E. No buttons, etc. Just an old fashioned key. The spares were cut at a licensed dealer with my VIN number. Can I rule out the possibility that it is the spare key causing this problem? Is it just a coincidence that it happened during this time?
The spare keys of course open the doors and can engage the starter to try and get the car going.
have the same problem?
