this sounds like the anti-theft system has activated not allowing you to start car.the system shuts down spark and fuel.you may need to reprogram the key to the car again.i think that if you turn the key in the on position for 3 minutes then off wait for 5 seconds i think and back on for 3 mins and off and again one more time.the 4th time you should be able to start the car.
The first step is to check and see whats not working, when you say it wont start then do you mean you turn the key and nothing happens then you may have a bad battery or starter but if the engine spins and spins but wont start then you will need to check a few things. First is to check the timing belt, remove the upper timing belt cover and have someone trun the key and make sure the cam spins and the belt is tight if thats okay then the next thing to do is try sparying starting fluid into throtlebody , have some one hold gas pedal to floor then yoiu spray the starting fluid into throtlebody for about 5 sec, then release gas pedal and then try to start. if the car starts then dies after a few seconds then you will know its a fuel problem. if that doesnt do anything then remove a sparkplug wire and stick screwdriver into the end of the sparkplug wire and place it about 1 inch away from a metal part of engine and then have someone try to start car while you watch and see if the screw driver or wire sparks, this will tell you if its getting spark if theres no spark then you may have a bad control module or bad coil, start with these tests to find out whats the reason for no start.If the battery is good then the engine should spin over and the only thing that may be missing is spark or fuel or the timing belt broke, good luck.
theres a chip on the key and when you insert the key into the cylinder lock to start the car theres two sensors that read the chip, the most common problem is the sensors stick and doesnt spring out to touch the chip, try spraying a little wd40 into lock and look inside you will see two round sensors use a small pick to push them in and make sure they pop back out theres one on each side, if that doesnt work then the wires from the igntion are broken inside the steering column, take note if this is the problem the car will start and die start and die thats the problem you get from the system if it bad, but if you turn the key to start the car and it doesnt do anything or the engine just spins without running a few seconds then its not the antitheft system .hope this helps,
this depends on how hot, if you drove awhile when it was overheating you may have done damage or not its hard to say, the first thing is to try to get it running then figure out why the coolant was low, you will need to check for spark first, remove a sparkplug wire and place it near a ground, remove at the plug and stick a screwdriver in the boot place near ground like engine or metal bracket, have someone spin the key and see if theres spark,if theres spark then spray starting fluid into throtlebody and see if it starts for a bit, these test will tell you if its a spark or fuel problem, if it runs on starting fluid then you may have a bad fuelpump, if theres no spark, then i would have the computer scanned for codes these codes will help in pin pointing the problem, it could be a coil or crank sensor, hope this helps.
Start by having the charging system checked,unless the car engine spins but doesnt start,if it spins over and wont start then it not the charging system,when the car dies check for spark, remove a sparkplug wire insert a screwdriver in boot and place 1/4 inch near metal and crank engine and see if theres spark,this will help pin point your problem if theres spark then the next thing to do would be to spray starting fluid in throttlebody and see if it starts,hope this helps let me know the results.
it may be a bad fuelpump,try sparying starting fluid into throtlebody if it starts then its a fuel problem, you can also check for spark,pull a plug wire insert a screwdriver into connection of wire and place close to a ground then have someone crank engine and see if theres spark,if theres no spark it could be a ignition control module,the best thing to do is pin point the problem by seeing what itt doesnt have,fuel or spark,
