If you haven't driven the car much, the battery in the car might be dead with just enough charge for the alarm?

You didn't say in your post but how do you know the key fob is bad?

Did you try changing the battery in the key fob?

Even if the key fob battery is dead you should still be able to start the car by pushing the start button with the keyfob itself.

There's a video in this thread about that too

I'd probably also check the car battery like DonP suggested

Thanx guys

Ya I drive it everyday...
Car battery is good...

I changed battery in fob of course :)
I dont have keyless, i have to put fob into ignition...
When i first insert fob it says "key not programmed"

Weird it would lose programming....

I did try to start a friends dodge truck with my keys... the day before....
Dont see how that could have done anything....

But hopefully I found a locksmith...he is headed here now....
But has to drive over an hour away...gonna cost way to much but have no choice.

Did you try your second key fob, or do you not have one?

Woohoo got her up and running

Key fob part that starts the car was broke....
280$ later....
I now have a key... a solid key that can not break..has no batteries......
.I guess there actually is a key hole....
