The immobilizer and locking system are separate, so it’s not surprising your doors unlock but your engine won’t start. The immobilizer ECU looks for a code from the transponder found in the key. If it does not receive the code it is looking for upon request, it will deny operation of the start solenoid. A problem with the key, ECU or any other part of the system will prevent your vehicle from starting. I recommend having a professional diagnose your no start condition. YourMechanic is an excellent option since we come to you and can save you a tow bill.
