Hi there. Try reprogramming the key fob to your vehicle. Click here to view the procedure on reprogramming your key fob. If the key is programmed to your vehicle, then the immobilizer controller may need to be replaced. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your Immobilizer System.
