Pushing it off? Do you mean jump start? Check the condition/voltage of the battery.

Yes pushed it off , it won't jump start , I have gotten new battery


Is the starter turning engine,just want crank,or not turning engine?


Did you have the transponder in the key programed? These cars have a chip in the key and must send a signal to the CPU in order to crank.

If it cranks, but won't start. Check the fuel shut off reset. Usually beh8 do right floor kick panel.
