Sounds to me like the VATS system when my car wouldn't crank last week. I got something on the key from my pocket. It is so quick when you let up and retwist the key those 3 times. Then you're locked out for 3-4 minutes. About the time it took to mess with the battery cable and get back in the car. Then the key worked with the contacts that time.
Clean the keys off just to be sure. Alcohol was recommended for me--dip the key and put it in to clean contacts inside the steering column.
Next time watch for the security light to just stay on solid no matter what you do with the key.
