Your transmission went into Limp Home Mode. There could be a variety of reasons why that happens.

Once you push the start button or turn the key the engine "cranks" or turns at the mercy of the starter. It's a slow speed but should be enough for it to "start" and run with air and fuel. If it...

The fuel pump should prime the moment you open the door, and the car wakes up. If it's not doing that the fuel pump is going or gone. You should have codes read to be absolutely sure though.
