Don't you still have a valid factory warranty on a MY2010? Unrecognized Smart Key issues were very common on early build 2010s and new keys and/or control modules were often required. Take her to a dealer and let them figure it out.

i just got word from the dealer and they said this are the parts i need to change BCM, instrument pack and keyless vehicle module are this parts all interconnected and would this make sense to be the problem of my range or can it be the instrument pack as it was repaired i found out before it was sold to me do you think it got damaged and this is the problem of my range not starting so should i start to change the instrument pack first then see if this works what do you think
