    Do you have an alarm/anti-theft device? It sounds like that is malfunctioning and causing the problem. When you hit the locks, it's enabling the ignition lock because the anti-theft thinks someone is trying to steal the car.

    Disable the anti-theft (pull the fuses or whatever you have to do) and give it a try.

    FYI, power locks and windows on GM cars are notorious for wearing out and not working after 10 years or so. Every GM I've ever owned has had this problem. Windows go up and down really slow and locks will not always engage. The locks not locking could be a separate issue.

The auto shut down relay controls power to the coil and fuel injection so if on power is at the coil once the engine dies this is normal check cranking it should return but no spark then test the crank shaft sensor iit is on back of engine passenger side bolted to block.

Died and wont crank


If it died and won't crank, sounds like you lost power to something.
Does the warning lights come on when you turn the key on ?
Got headlights ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter and work back from there.

2000 S10 no start


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?https://s8.postimg.org/50arofh11/fuel_pump.jpg
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.

Wont start... My 93 accord died several times the last time it died and hasent started since. The tach and speedo were jumping erdadically while going down road. Now every thing will work except for power...


sounds like the igntion switch has failed, not the key cylinder but the actual electrical switch, a common problem on these earlier honda's, the bit about when the windows work is the dead give away

I have a 93 altima that will crank but will not start...about a couple months ago i went to my work and shut off my car. it was running fine when i shut it off.. when i came back out and started my car...


this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power
