I had this on mine. The AA guy who came out suggested disconnecting the battery for 2 minutes, then reconnecting with the card in the reader. It worked!! As soon as he reattached the negative terminal the ignition switched on. This was about 4 months ago, it's happened again once since then. Obviously if you do this you need to reset the windows and re-enter the radio code.
I have read on here that disconnecting the battery on lagunas can cause problems (maybe someone else can advise?), so you have to consider that before you try it!!

Incidentally, how much was the reader?
