    turn your lights on then try and start the car, if the lights dim right down then the battery is flat, recharge battery and find out why it is flat, ie alternator not charging or the battery has failed

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok

Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Car wont turn over put new battery and starter in still nothing and the security light keeps coming on

Turn on the head lights then try to start the car with someone watching them. If the lights dim it will show at least that the circuit is complete and there is a load draw. If nothing happends, check the ground cables and wire and check again.
