Is your car a manual? If so, my bet is its your natural safety switch

I think he means neutral safety switch. I googled "natural" and most of the
results came up "Neutral safety switch"

Look behind the clutch and there's a white button thing that you have to push in. Keep it pushed in and then have someone start the car. It should work fine.
