Where'd you get the key from? If you don't have the old one to measure the resistance of the pellet, then you'll have to get a new one from the dealer, based on your VIN.

Go get your manual if you have DIC which you do being an SSEi owner read about it in there. Yes there is a way of should be unless they need a Tech 2 like 93 SLE said. Try it my way first tho. Good luck!

Thanks guys! I finally figured it out though!
3 step process
Half hour with a good battery or connected to a charger

start with new key.. it wont start but leave in on position
ten minutes later turn key again and leave in on position
third time, repeat process
ten minutes later it should start right up... it did for me!
