Ok the "start error" message only has to do with 2 things , the key is bad so try two keys of you have another one. Or the ring around the key hole is bad it's called a "transponder coil" and it reads the key when the key is turned to the on position. If it does not work or recognize a known good key it will give you that message. Here is a link to a picture of it
