Hello, my name is Bobby. Thanks for the question. Can you tell me what the vehicle does when you try starting it now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it tries to start, but does not start. A flashing red key symbol keeps showing up

Thank you. If that key is on then your security system is active and will shut the vehicle down. Do you have a spare key to try? If you d then give that a shot. If that does not work then the receiver is more than likely bad.
