zeroboot is on a distinguished road
Turns out the issue was due to the EWS and DME not being aligned and the rolling code that they use to communicate didnt match. They had to do a 'reset' on the 2 modules, and then the vehicle would start. SO basically the watchdog system (EWS) which is the anti-theft system, wouldnt let me drive the vehicle or start it after I turned it off.

My bigger question to them was why it happened in the first place, is it a common issue, and would it happen again...the response was they dont really know . While I am happy to get my vehicle back, the lack of a root cause doesnt make me feel too warm and fuzzy.
