    Try warming the key GENTLY with a heater or similar device; but don't use a microwave. If this doesn't help; call a dealership and have them come and get the car; this should be covered under your warranty.

    The other possibility is that the batteries in the keys are dead, or almost so. They will often die at the same time because they are given to you at the same time. Aside from replacing those batteries, if you haven't already, sometimes placing the key right next to the ignition button will work; my dealer says the chip inside can be detected at close range even if it doesn't transmit. If neither of those work, then it is dealer-time indeed.
