Lock the car with the key in the drivers door. Unlock the car with the key in the drivers door and try again, using the black key. The plastic key is just to unlock car if you have an emergency, the gray key is the valet key. Are you certain the battery has enough juice to crank the car over? Lights and radio don't use much current so they are not a good indicator of battery capacity.
