Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

I would suggest you try to jump start it, and also try a second key.

if it still will not start, then you should have it towed for warranty repair.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
