I have power but not start

Hey guy's, just wondering if anyone has had or heard of this problem. When I unlock the car the boot doesn't unlock and when I turn the key I have reds but it wont crank, my battery has 12.3v and it's a fairly new starter motor. Its like the starter isn't getting the signal to start, i have check the fuses. Any help would be appreciated

Re: I have power but not start

If the rear door does not unlock that would suggest low voltage but 12.3 is ample to start. Assume you’ve checked it is in neutral as will be dead if not (auto I assume if you are in Aus). Other than that sounds like an immobiliser issue, OE or aftermarket would be my start point

Maybe dead battery in key or dead chip. I have an unprogramed chip key that turns the engine over, but no start, I got around it by using my remote start, and putting in run postion. Try putting in neutral and see if it fires, good luck
