Hi. When the wrong key was put in the ignition it damaged the components inside the ignition causing it to shut the car down. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the ignition and have the new ignition programed to your car. The most cost effective way to fix this is to try your local locksmith because they can come to you and program the key. The other option would be to tow it to the dealership and have them fix it.
