do you have a voltmeter, any?
if you do, this is childs play, but not, near impossible to see electrons
with eye balls. we can see atoms, but not electrons, probably never.
but back to earth, this is easy , the FSM cover this, as does alldata.com
but i bet $15 for the online is over budget?
my guess, is not have any elect. power really means you cant
CRANK the engine over?
or it cranks or will not start.
no car cranks with out a starter, cept my M/T i can push start
it and gravity start mine.
but my guess 2 is yours is A/T tranny.
so must crank.
why not post like this.
i get in car, i turn on head lights, they are dead. (dead battery or fuse blown) no, my head lights work. (this is always test 1)
then i turn the key on, and the dash idiot lamps all glow. (normal)
if not the fuses are blown or the battery is dead.
a good battery reads (any voltmeter even walfart $10 meter)
ok my dash glows. and more important the EFI CEL lamp
this lamp is called many thing, MIL, SES or check engine light
if it dont glow, then the Fuser to the EFI are in fact blown.
or the lamp is bad.
if in usa, you can plug any OBD2 scan tool into the near knees DLC port and it will connect, key on, if not the fuses are BLOWN.
you push the scan button and get what codes? DTC errors.
then crank for 5 seconds (im assuming it can) and you get what DTC.
if car will not crank
then jumper start crank it. does it?
yes, then the battery was dead.
if battery dead, charge it , does it crank now?
if battery discharges parked this is called parasitic drain.
if starter is dead , with jumper cables that is bad starter or key line.
we can do this 1 step at a time
but you never posted the symptoms.
- head lamps dead.
- dash dead.
- starter dead (will not crank)
- all above good , engine will not start.
in that order.
