This probably will not help, but I got two keys with my car. I was told one was bad, and needed reprograming. I looked into that, and was about to send it off. But some where I read to try this.
Kind of similar to re learning the clutch actuator... I used the fob to lock, then unlock doors, foot on brake, inserted key to pos 1, then did the shifter thru all gears, then back to P, foot off brake, and key off.
Oddly enough, my key that would only open the doors before, became fully functional, it starts the car just fine.
Now, I do not remember if the instrument cluster illuminated or not prior to the key starting to work.
Also, have you tried to disconnect the battery for a while? Maybe leave it disconnected over night?
Just shooting from the hip, but you never can tell, and if it saves you from taking it to a dealer.....GR8!
Where are you located, someone out there has got to be able to lend a hand.
