Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the engine started, ran for two seconds and died abruptly three times and locked the starter out then the problem involves the SKIM system which uses a transponder in the key that has to be validated for the engine to run. If you aren't seeing a damaged or incorrect key message then it may be a module or communication issue rather than the key itself.
If it didn't' die abruptly like the key was shut off then it may be a fuel delivery issue or possibly contaminated fuel.
Have you tried a second key?
Have you checked for fault codes?
