The car won't start at all? Did you check the starter relay?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 19 days ago.

Dear customer this kind of problem is very common and it turns out that there are several factors that can cause this problem, the essential thing is to start by checking the battery terminals, also change the battery if you feel that it is discharged, I would like to recommend you to check the state of the fuses and make sure that they are correct, there is a possibility that the starter motor is damaged but before proceeding to check the starter motor I recommend that you do a programming of the key to rule out that the problem is not that the anti-theft system is activated and finally if all this has been checked if we proceed to check the starter motor.

Remember that this answer is of a general nature and if you have any concerns or doubts you can let me know.
