Hey there, sorry to hear about this issue. Since the key itself is not working, there is likely a fault with the alarm system. If the alarm is a factory alarm then it will need to be repaired by the dealer. If it is an aftermarket alarm system, then have a mechanic come and remove the alarm and arrange the wires back to factory.
