Your Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) is probably activating because your new key doesn't have the required chip (or if it has the chip it isn't programmed correctly.) When you use the new key and the engine stops does the "Theft" light start blinking rapidly? If it does then you need to get a PATS key (these keys have the large, black, rubber-like head on them.) It will be more expensive since it has a chip on it and will need to be programmed to your vehicle. A non-PATS key is only good for opening the door or trunk.

That makes sense, the new key is just a standard metal key, thank you for responding Angrod, that answered my question. I just joined this forum today and I wish I would've done it sooner, thanks again
