If it really is brand new, raise a stink with the dealer.
3 days is ridiculous.
It might just be a dead 12 V battery.
Does that model have an emergency mechanical key ? Have you tried to use it ??

A truly wise man is one who knows that he knows not.

3 days?! why? If you need it immediately then call a locksmith. I'd pursue the dealer.

I hope the problem has been resolved , but when dealer ask you such things don't wait much for this. Immediately hire a Locksmith and ask to open the lock so that you will go for drive.

I agree with Lila , dealer must be recommended for such issue not the Locksmith. They have real parts and software to assemble the locks again.
