Question 2003 immobilizer - no start

Okay, 2003, ran fine last night, get in it this morning, cranks and cranks and cranks. No start. Key flashing on the dash. Tried all four factory keys I have, two black keys and two valet keys, all worked just fine before. I've tried disconnecting the battery for a while and blowing on the keys for good luck. Nothing works. Are we really left to consult the dealer to let them perform some voodoo on it? Does anybody really know how to fix this. I have read a pile of posts about this and not one of them really has a resolution.
Any ideas?
