My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. Try locking and unlocking the vehicle with the remote or key and then see if it starts and runs then.If it does then this was a theft issue and the lock signal needed to be seen to correct this here.If this does not work what will have to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model to see what codes are set.Once this has been done any codes set need diagnosed to locate and repair this fault.I have seen failure of the key or remote cause this here as well as the immobilizer that reads the key needing replaced to correct this issue. 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
