Sounds like you threw a way the Ring Antenna. See the info below...your car isn't going to start until the EWS transponder chip (in the key) can communicate with your EWS control module and the car's DME/ECU...and the only way for that to happen is thru the ring antenna which powers the EEPROM (transponder chip) by way of a 125 KHz AM signal: (btw, you have EWS 3.2 so you don't have a transmitter/receiver)
