Sounds like valve clatter. (noise)
Check the oil and make sure it is to the correct level.
Change the oil. (and filter) If it is old, it loses its viscosity.
It becomes thin and not very effective. You may also choose to add a thicker viscosity oil to quiet things down a bit as a temporary fix. This is what dealerships do when selling a used vehicle with certain engine noises.
Be careful not to overdo it. Especially now that it is winter.
The oil will become to thick on a cold start, starving the engine for critical lubrication when it needs it most. The reason why you get valve clatter upon startup, (if that is the issue) is because the oil all drains down as the vehicle sets and it takes time to recirculate through the motor. When it is worn, nothing sticks to the surfaces it is supposed to protect.

In order to start and run an engine needs: -
A good cranking speed.
The correct amount of fuel delivered into the combustion chamber at the right time,
Good compression.
A spark sufficient to ignite the mixture at the right time.

An engine that doesn't start has at least one requirement missing and only systematic checks will reveal which.

Considering the age of the car I wouldn't be surprised if the injector spray patterns are bad and I suggest you begin there.

Could be a bad transponder key. Not an uncommon fault with Commodores. Also if the key case comes loose it will prevent the transponder from registering. Found a helpful link for you to check out -

Reverse lights traditionally will share a fuse with other things on an ignition circuit, such as brake lights, indicators or similar.

I don't know where the switch is - manual is typically fitted to the gearbox and auto typically to the selector lever/linkage.

Be aware at 2013 your car could be fully computerised and it is unwise to be uninformed about the circuit when troubleshooting too deeply...

I would totally suggest that battery be suspected and investigated. If car not run for 2 years, what steps have you taken to check battery charge/condition, and recharge it?
I would suggest is probably nothing wrong with key, if it turns ignition lock to 'on' position, and then to 'start' position, then..surely key is doing its job?
But it cannot do much more if battery is dodgy.
Almost no battery is going to be up for much after a 2 year sit..in fact a 3-6month sit is going to drain most of them,and it also may have sulfided up plates which mean it will also resist charging.
Jump starting from either another car or a good battery, with jumper leads you know are good performers(most cheap jumper leads become dodgy after being used a couple of times, the connections in them are too poor to hold under high load) should make the difference.
