Our Ford S-max has recently had some work done to it and new battery fitted. Engine fired when start button was pressed but car didn’t start.
The car doesn’t even crank or fire up now and there is a message on the display.

Have you tried reprogramming the key against the spare?

If you only have one key, it could be an auto locksmith job though!

You need to get the car recovered to a dealer who can plug in the diagnostics and find out which components are not coded correctly.
Be warned, you may end up with a very expensive repair here as certain components can only be coded when new - so some components fitted to your car may not be able to be re-coded.
