The fact that it's not turning over indicates that you have a starting problem. Going in or out of gear is not relevant at this time, unless you can start it in Neutral and not in Park. This means you only said that your car won't start and provided make and model (which is very helpful). If the power is as good ask you said, how and where did you text it? It could be a bad starter or security system problem. Start by checking if the starter is getting power while cranking on the small wire (most of the time it would be Red or Orange) . Please click on "Mark helpful" if you're happy with the respond. Good luck :-)

My girlfriend purchased a Honda Pilot 2017 brand new, a year later with 40k miles in. The car has a problem starting up. I had to jump start the car and get the battery analyzed at Battery Plus, they told me the battery is still GREAT! Well guess what, we got stranded again because it wouldnt start. I called the Honda Boyte service team and they gave me a tow truck number that is out of commission because his truck broke..........and unfortunately Honda Boyte wont cover her car because warranty is 3yrs 30k miles whichever comes first. Come home to find out my niece has a problem starting up with her new 2017 Honda CRV as well!!! They said her battery was also good!! I did some studying and come to find alot of people are having issues starting up their Honda 2016/2017 push start. Does anyone else have this problem? We invested over 20k in a brand new car and not even 2 years old we have maintenance problems? i have 4yr Toyota 100k with ZERO problems. Something is wrong with this picture, if you have this same problem Call or txt me at (601)595-1261. This recalls a Class Action.
