IF you never replaced a battery in this car then that is the problem, its a 7-8 year old car they usually only last 4-5.


Is the transmission lever in park and not still in neutral?

yes and i tried to start it in neutral too


Possibly bad ingantion switch, try pushing the key in as you are turning it
