When everything else fails ,,, disconnect the positive battery cable for 10 seconds then reconnect .. it will clear any anomalies that may be lurking in the ECU, Use your spare key ,,, the battery inside your key may be bad Make sure you don't see "security" displayed /// a sign of a security issue is it will start then run a few seconds then quit

It could be your purg sencer my Cadillac cts was doing that that's whT is was
