Expert:  Kenny replied 10 months ago.

Reprograming the key fobs will not fix your issue. It sounds like the starter motor has failed and will need to be replaced.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok so all light come on and dash come on and you can hear fuel pump is that still starter
Expert:  Kenny replied 10 months ago.

Yes, That is all normal for it to do. The fuel pump turns on because it thinks the car is going to start you usually don't hear it because the engine is starting.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
u won't even here start trying if it fails?
Expert:  Kenny replied 10 months ago.

If the started has failed you will not hear work because it isnt working.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok I will give it a try...
Expert:  Kenny replied 10 months ago.

Ok, Let me know how you make out.
