Is it not starting with the key or push button at all now? Have you locked and unlocked the vehicle with the remote with the push button installed to see if it then starts and runs? Let me know,thanks Pete

You can come back here and post anytime your ready. From the way it sounds here this sounds like the key itself is not being detected properly by the computer in your vehicle.This can cause a no start with the key itself as well as with the push button assembly here.If this occurs with more then one key let me know but if it only occurs with one key or you only have one key/remote I suspect it may be at fault internally causing this issue here.The other component that may be causing this fault here is a fault with the electronic ignition switch itself.I have seen this switch act up/fail in the past before needing replaced for this type of fault here.This would need to be checked/tested further to be sure with first having the fault codes read out with a fully compatible scan tool for your model here then those codes diagnosed to locate and repair the fault here. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete
