    Your key has a chip (resistor) in it, that is part of the anti-theft system. There are 14 possible key chips (iirc) and you have to match that to your original key because the body control module that reads that value cannot be retrained to accept a different key chip. Your best bet is to take your lock cylinder and key to a dealer parts department that can identify which key you have and either get you a cylinder and keys with the correct chips that will work in your car or build a lock cylinder that your original key will operate that can be installed in your car.
