Your battery has frozen it might work agian but I doubt it try a new batt guarantee it will start in winter cold drains on battery's in car and trucks that's why u want to run it every few days to recharge it
i repaired one of these the other day for the same sort of problem and i checked all the obvious but the fault persisted weither it was on gas or petrol ,well i tried to repair it would be a better description but i had to admit defeat in the end and myself and the owner took it to the dealer in alicante where they changed the computer ,but it cost a small fortune and if i had known i would have found one in the scrapyard with the key and transponder and changed the lot for him .It was expensive to say the least
to test whats wrong you need a test light 12 volt. It's an ice pick like tool with a clear handle and a ware with an alligater clip. hook the clip to ground near the ciol then with the key on the ciols small wires will be hot ( lights the light ) unplug the small wire plug at the coil and one wire will be hot the other cold. the one thats cold connect the test light and reconnect to the coil. crank the engine before cranking with the key on it should be lit cranking it should flash off and on quickly. All of this presoposes that the battery is well charged and cranks the engine good. if it just stays on then you need to verify that the distrubutor is turning, ( cap off look it it with it cranking it should turn if not the timing chain whent out. no flash and the distrbutor turns the crank senser 9 DISTUBUTOR PICKUP OR THE INGTION MODULE failed any of the wires can break too. Most auto parts stores can test the module before you buy a new one. module failure is common well motor no start. the pickup is not as common and if your not a regular mechanic then changing the distrubutor is easier. make sure that you put the new one in the same as the old one or it won't run. turn the engine till the rotor points straight to somewhere (front) pull the old on watching it turn as it comes out so you can turn the new one in at the same place put the cap back on and fire it up. The rebuilt distrubutor will have a new pickup and module. The coil can fail but not like a light switch. if the the ciol has power and the other side flases and theres no spark the coil is bad.
more than one thing can blow the fuse, unplug the ingtion ciol and the distrubutor and then install a new fuse and turn the key on if the fuse blows then there is still something in the computer system or wiring that is crossed. Next also unplug the ECM itself and see if it still blows the fuse if it doesn't blow the fuse with the key on then plug in the disconnected items one at a time till you find the item thats bad or the wires that have gotton into troble. The oxogen senser heater can be on this circuit and there may be two oxoxgen sensers unplug them both and check that there wires haven't gotton into trobleagainst the exhaust pipes or other hot parts. If it doesn't blow the fuse with the oxogen sensers unplugged plug one in at a time and check fuse It'll run with the oxogen sensers unplugged. The sensers sometimes fail but more often the wire getts against the hot pipe and shorts to the pipe. repair wire and ty off and it may work just like it's supposed to.
Clean out the Idle Control valve. remove the air duct from the aircleaner system. spray directly into the valve opening. it is a small component with 2 small hoses . Sludge build up and oil deposits will dirty the valve. If that does not work you can remove it and spray directly into the 2 holes on the underside of the valve. Clean the air filter or replace it.if that is not it, then it is probably the EGR valve.
Initially, pls try checking the fusible link that supplies the main power from the battery to the electrical system of your vehicle. This wire is inline with the big battery cable on the positive battery terminal. Often, there would be a connector at its end (about 6 inches from the terminal) before joining the main harness. Clean/Scrape/replace or altogether cut it and just splice the fusible link to the wire.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
