Re: Key not detected

I had an issue similar to this. My push start wouldnt start the vehicle, yet the automatic start would. Come to find out, I had my magnetic name tag in the pocket where my keyfob was. The magnetism interfered with the hand shake the key makes with the BCM. I took the key out and it would let me start it up, the security light was flashing the entire drive, but once I restarted it the light went away.
