If your car won’t turn over or won’t get going with a bump start I suspect there could be a problem with the ignition switch or the wiring going to it, or possibly with the engine immobiliser. I would suggest getting an auto electrician to have a look at it as you have already tried the most obvious items.

I had to get the ECU rebooted to accept the except the original key.appartly because we had a dead battery its caused a fault in the ecu.it cost £180.for a chap to reprogram the ecu.so not cheap.
