I'm pretty sure the anti-theft bit (PATS = Passive Anti Theft System) is what's causing your grief. Basically there is a chip in the key which is mated to the chip in the instrument cluster. If the chip isn't present (as you don't have the key) the anti-theft chip in the cluster denies the attempt to start the car.
