Is the red dot flashing when you turn the key to run?
Does it not crank at all now? What happens when you turn the key to run?

That's definitely a skim/key issue. It will start and stall within a second for so many attempts then it won't let it crank after so many attempts with a key it doesn't recognize. Does the red dot come on at all in the cluster when you turn the key to run?
Hi, do you still need help? Does that red dot come on at all when you turn the key to run?
Ok, the first thing I would check is the powers and grounds at the skim module. You need to remove the steering column covers to access it. Pin 4 pink/white should be hot with the key on, pin 6 gray/red should be hot at all times, pin 5 black/white should have a good ground. The skim module is the rectangle black box on the right side of the steering column. Can you check those wires with a test light?
Behind the covers. It has a black plastic circle antenna wrapped around the lock cylinder attached to it.
