Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. It sounds like you have a dead battery in the vehicle. If it is dead then the keyless remotes will not work and the vehicle will not start. I would either remove the battery and have it load tested or try jumping it but it sounds like the issue. If not let me know and we will continue.
