Hello sorry for the delay , how many keys do you have ? Try them both ? Also does the dash say "start error" the most common issue is a failed "transponder coil" I will upload a picture of it. Most likely it is not recognizing the key and that is why it will not start.

That is the link to the part I am talking about. It's pretty easy to replace but must be purchased from a dealer. If you only have one key then it's possible the key is the issue as well and will also need to be purchased at a dealer. Hope this information helps.
