Hello, my name is***** you tell me if there are any warning lights on the dash when you try starting it?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No warning lights. Looks normal. But when you turn the ignition starter the car claims it does not recognize the fob.

It sounds like the vehicle has lost its remote programming. I have seen this many times and the gateway needs to be rebooted with a scan tool and the system reprogrammed. It can also occur if the battery is low so that should be tested also.
