I had this same problem about 3 weeks ago. The battery only had 10 volts (it's supposed to have 12). So it was enough power to turn on the lights on the dashboard, but not enough to turn over the car. It was a duralast battery, I took it to Autozone. The battery had a lifetime warranty and since it only lasted like 2 years, they replaced it for free.
I have the same problem check ign fuses coilpack distributor cap and rotor remove a sparkplug to see if you are getting spark and fuel no fuel change the fuel filter and the fuel pump is under the back seat.

There are two possible reasons, the HVAC system needs to recalibrate itself or one of the HVAC door actuators has gone bad or is stuck. To recalibrate the system, set all HVAC controls to their OFF or CCW positions. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then reconnect. Do not touch any of the HVAC controls for about 2 -3 minutes. Then see if the systems works OK. If this does not work, the dash will need to be disassembled to access the door actuators.
Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)
hi there the things to check are do you have a spark at the plugs?
do you have compression ?
are the cam shafts turning?
is the cam belt intact?
this are all needed to make the engine run it will turn over great but not start with this things not working infact if the last 3 are not there it will sound diffrent when you are turning it over with the key.
Hey Boise007,try this.Disconnect the negative battery cable for about 3 minutes.Then reconnect it and try turning the a/c on again.if the lights stop flashing and the a/c starts working properly,the problem will be the a/c control heas itself.
CHECK THE FUSIBLE LINK THAT COMES OFF THE STARTER POST.THEY LOOK JUST LIKE A WIRE, BUT THEY GET STRECHY WHEN THERE'RE BLOWN.IF THIS IS THE CASE YOU WILL NEED TO FIND THE CIRCUT THAT CAUSED IT TO BLOW,AND REPLACE THE LINK.
