    The original with the transponder was getting worn. A combination of the key and the lock after 400K 250,000miles. Was getting near impossible to turn to start. So I replaced with an aftermarket without the transponder. Now it won't start but the dash lights up showing icons I have never seen before. I thought if the original key was on the key chain it would work .I even held the old key against the transponder.
