SOURCE: I replaced the starter of
For purposes of this response, I will assume that the intermittent start issue is what originally prompted the replacement of the starter. Lubricate your ignition switch with spray lubricant. If that does not solve the problem, check for continuity at the ignition switch connector under the dash panel. If continuity does not test ok at the connector, replace the ignition switch. If continuity of the ignition switch tests ok, replace the ignition relay, and that should solve the issue.
In the case where the intermittent start issue was not present prior to the starter's replacement, before checking all of the items previously enumerated, make certain that the connections to the starter solenoid are clean and properly tightened. Again, IF the problem of intermittent starting did not exist previously, it could be either a faulty connection at the starter or a defective starter solenoid.

If the smart key battery gets low to where it won't start the car you can hold the smart key with the logo facing the start button close to the button then push it to start the engine.

Hello Jaclyn...Look under the dash area for a button or, a toggle (valet)
switch. When you locate it, turn on the ignition key, press and hold in the button (little spring loaded micro button, red or black possibly)
until the alarm chirps 1 time. This should over ride the system, and only the keyless entry part, if installed, would still be operating....The LED light in the dash should also go on solid....At this point. the alarm would have reset.
If this had a starter kill relay installed it would now be opened, and the engine would turn over when tried.
You would repeat these steps to go back to user mode to see if this was corrected...i hope this information is helpful...Happy Holidays.
