Hey, sorry for the delay! Glad you got it up and running!A few tricks to keep in mind on These intelligent key cars. If your getting no response at all then try turning on the headlights. If they are dim or don't come on then your looking at a batter issue.
If the ignition switches to ACC or On but doesn't crank, then you know it sees the key it just won't crank because it's not seeing a brake switch signal or park/neutral signal.Lastly if the headlights work but no response from start button or the "insert key" icon on the dash. This means it's not detecting the key.Lastly, a flashing security light is normal, the time to be concerned is when it's on SOLID.
