Default 1997 SC2 Key Issue

Hi Everyone! I am so happy to find the forum. We just purchased a 1997 SC2 as our teenage son's first car. It's a terrific little automatic in excellent condition with only 75,000 original miles...hard to believe but true! This is our second Saturn as we also purchased an SC1 several years ago for our daughter...years of trouble free driving!

Our "new" SC2 only came with one original key and fob. The fob opens the doors, locks the car and honks on the second press of the lock button, opens the trunk, and the panic button works. I had an extra key made at the hardware store and when we unlocked the car and opened the door, the horn honked repeatedly and the car wouldn't start. Pressing the panic button stopped the honking. I then tried the "real" key and the same thing happened...the horn honked, horn became louder when the key was placed in the ignition, and the car wouldn't start. The GM dealer has no idea (wish there were still Saturn dealers).

I have searched the web but am unable to find a similar problem but was hoping someone on the forum could help. Thanks so much!
