My car listed above SE model will not start. When going to start the car the lights come on but when turning the key to the on position nothing happens other than the fuel pump you can hear it turn on. But it is like it is completely dead. We just had the motor replaced last year and when checking for codes there are zero codes found. Also will not move out of the park position, but when you push to move it out of park it says “car is not in the park position”.
Do you
have the same problem?

Yes it is. It started yesterday fine then shut it off. When trying to restart it then it did the same thing.

It sounds like you need to reset the security system. Exit the car and lock it with the remote. Then let it sit for one hour, unlock the driver's door using the key and the system should be reset. Here is guide that can help as well:

Please run down this guide and report back. Is the battery okay?

Cheers, Ken

I tried that and the security light keeps flashing, but still nothing. The battery is a new battery.

The security system is engaged, did you try a hard reboot? Remove the negative cable and hold it to the positive cable for one minute to discharge the system capacitors this will allow the system to come back from scratch. Let me know
