Provided info skimpy. MT / CVT? Premium? Limited?

Does it just crank, or does it try to start?

Have you read Section 7-10 -> 7-14 of owners manual, as well as ch 3?

Foot on brake pedal when cranking?
Checked Gas Cap is tight? This is more common than you might think.

Eyesight Disables when Check Engine is lit. So not very telling.
Hill assist... Hill Start Assist? or Hill Descent Control?

Having an OBD-II Scanner here would point right to the problem.

Hello thanks for your help, it cranks it just doesn't fully start. I checked the gas cap it wasn't that. I kept my foot on the brake well it was trying to start that didn't help. It is a CVT. I'm going to go to Canadian Tire after work and get one of those scanners see what that does

Sounds a lot like the issues are being caused by a faulty brake switch - check your recalls. I was having similar issues and the recall fixed them all.

Hey, everyone, thanks for your help. It turned out to be mice!!!! Those bastards chewed through a wiring harness under the intake manifold. Right at the crank sensor..
