My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This sounds like the security system is engaged.Make sure the battery is in the correct way.If it is try to lock and unlock the doors with the remote or key or interior lock and unlock buttons and see if the vehicle then starts.If this does not work you may have to have the security system relearned by a shop or dealer to resolve this issue.The programming for the theft system may have been wiped out/lost when the battery was replaced.
