Re: Turns over but wont start
Some questions to help in the analysis........
You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die? Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?
Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?

Hi Michelle, if this is a fully charged new battery fitted then the problem is the connection from the battery, check the earth strap is making a good contact on the chassis and the terminals are connected correctly and making a good contact with the battery posts!
If the engine wont crank when you turn the ignition it could be that the main fuse in the engine compartment may have blown if it does crank and wont start there could be one of many problems ie crank sensor,compression ,timing best to then have a diagnostic test done by an authorised dealer as you may find that you may replace all sorts of parts at unnecessary expense.
Nearly all modern cars with a column, console or floor-mounted shift knob are equiped with a shifter level lock release button. Look for a small hole or plastic plug, usually to the right side of the shift lever or on rare occassions above or below the shift knob. It should be just large enough to stick the ignition key into the hole and push on the release button. While holding the release button with one hand, have foot on the brake or parking brake set and gently bress the shift knob button and move to neutral. I spent two years working for ADT Automotive at Mid-America Auto Auction and out of over a quarter million automatic transmision cars I have seen, nearly all have this feature.
