Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if factory security (VTSS) is active and killing the engine. If VTSS isn't disarmed then it will allow the engine to start, run for two seconds and it will die abruptly as the fuel injectors are shut off. The lights should be flashing and horn honking also.

Do you still have a functional key fob?

the horn and lights arent going off and I dont know what a key fob is.

A key fob is a keyless entry transmitter.
