i agree with you that it is proofing out when light goes out after few secs from inserting the key and turning to on or start position light goes out correct like it supposed to .

do you have one or 2 keys for it ?

if they told the key not recognized , how did they ,since the light going out did they scan it ,what were the fault codes ?]

at time of no start ,does engine turn over and no start or it want even crank ?

fuses & relays for starter been checked ?

Please let me know

Thank You
