does the car start and run OK?
if so does its drive OK with no hesitation or lack of power?
in that case its probably not recognizing the key or if the airbags have discharged its possibly immobilised via the crash /airbag module
1st thing to try is replacing the battery in the key fob and if that doesn't help then do a reset by disconnecting the battery cables and clamping them together for 10 mins. Remove both battery leads from the battery then use a nut and bolt or G-clamp to hold both battery lead terminals together.
This discharges any capacitors / memory within the ECU and around the car so ensures all memory settings are wiped clear - back to the factory default.
This will reset all the systems on the car and you may need the radio security code to get it going again, and ensure that the keys are in your hand when you re-connect the battery as the car may lock and turn on the alarm
and if that doesn't work then sorry to say that you will need a dealer level diagnostic tool to plug into the car to reset the airbag and possibly the security module
do you still need help?
