Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. If you disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes, hook up the negative cable, then close the hood, trunk, and all doors, and put the key in the door lock cylinder and lock and unlock the doors a few times, then try to start it, let me know if that helps.
