Your car is in a safety lock mode. Disconnect battery for a bit, try again. Then check relays

And try your other key if you have it after reconnecting the battery.

It could be the new key. Just swap relays with one that works. I had the same problem after I rebuilt my car and swapped the rear defog relay with the starter relay and it fired right up
