It's unlikely to be both keys at fault unless you've removed the transponders from them.

I'd suspect the PATS sensor ring around the ignition barrel.

It's the immobiliser sensor around the barrel, just a plastic ring with wires to it.

Unless the system detects the correct chip in any key inserted into the ignition the engine won't start.

Best way to test is to manually unlock the doors with the key (not buttons) this will start a warning signal which is the car asking for a recognised key in the ignition.

Insert a key and turn to II, if recognised then the chime will stop.

If unrecognised then the alarm will sound.

You can stop it by removing the key, closing the door and pressing lock or unlock on the key.
