It lost sync with the car, we can try a master reset if that does not work you will need a factory scanner or equivalent to resync them, no manual way to do it in 2014 unfortunatelyMaster Reset1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter a vehicle and Start it.You are very welcome :)
