I always push the start button to Run position, wait for the chimes to stop dinging, and then push on the brake pedal. Is the ignition button changing from Off to Acc to Run ... or does it stay dark? If it stays dark push on the button with the end of the key FOB to see if the car starts.
Plug a scanner into the car's OBD2 port (located under the dash next to the parking brake pedal) and see if any diagnostic codes are logged. Use a scanner that can read all codes (not just Pxxxx powertrain codes) because a lot of the modules in the car post Bxxxx body codes and Uxxxx communication codes.

It changes to run and then you you hear a click and then a few seconds later the blower motor ( heater) starts running on high. The radio screen never comes on And the EVIC screen language is in German now not ln American like it used to be I am so confused. I’ve used the key fab and it does the same thing can you push the button in the door chime stops for a few seconds and then everything comes back on. But the radio screen,climate control screen, miles per hour everything does not come on. And the information center language is still in German.

Did you try disconnecting the battery for a bit to see if that might fix it? Sounds like it glitched somewhere with stuff changing to German.

The only time my car has changed it's personality (Uconnect screen color changed to blue, electronics misbehaving, car not starting, etc ...) was when I needed a new battery. Battery showed 12V when battery charger was attached but only showed 5V when the battery charger was removed.

I put ob scanner on and it shows no codes..
Does the scanner read all codes or just Pxxxx powertrain codes? The functions that are working correctly in your car are some of the functions controlled by the BCM (body control module). BCM diagnostic codes are Bxxxx body codes and Uxxxx communication codes/
