Have you tried pressing the unlock button while key is in start position with "key not accepted" message. This was the factory bypass for a failing chip or reciever around the key. You might also want to check the fuses for TWICE and make sure non are open. Recently had a car with "key not accepted" message and it was a blown fuse caused by the SPA (which is present on some 02 and up cars) not your 2000. But there were quite a few different control modules on that fuse. Good Luck, Bernie
