Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If security was armed and not disarmed then that should be why the engine is not starting. It shoudl disarm if a door is unlocked manually with the key. Have you tried unlocking both front doors with the key?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the car doesn't make the chirping sound when the door is unlocked. That was my first flue after my mechanic said he could get the starter to work by bypassing the starter wire with his wire.

Both doors were tried?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I'm pretty sure that I first entered on the passenger side before going to the driver's side, and only one door Ata time would unlock and the rear doors wouldn't unlock

Did the key fob with the missing batteries work? If so then you're going to want to install batteries in it and then press the unlock button to disarm it.
