Hi

Unless you know how to use a digital multi-meter, then hard to describe testing.
Howevr I would start with the ignition switch and test all power sources there.
Next move onto checking ALL fuses, there are two main locations, under bonnet and drivers side kick panel / dash area. Special attention to the really large ones.
Sounds like either wiring has shorted or a relay (Ignition) has failed.
You do not mention whether ignition lamps work, I suspect not.

You may have a bad alternator. Car died while driving, either gas or fire. if you know about MAFS your should know how to check starter function by jumping solenoid to large post of battery. Check for 12V at the large post on starter. Then try to jump the two connections. If car cranks, I would check ignition circuit for faults.

Motor start but does not run


Are you saying that the motor runs until you stop cranking it? or just that it truns over while the starter is engaged but doesn't fire at all?
If it's running while cranking but stalls immediately after you release the key and allow it to go into the "Run" position, then the ballast resistor of the ignition system is most likely bad. The idea is that on older cars with electronic ignition, the starter motor caused such a big voltage drop on the cars electrical system that the ignition coil wasn't provided a high enough voltage for proper spark to occur, so they wired them such that the ignition coil could handle the low voltage which was present during the cranking of the starter, but when you stopped cranking and the engine was running normally, suddenly without the voltage drop of the starter, the voltage would be to high and would damage the ignition circuit. Thus a 'ballast resistor' was added to the ignition circuit and it is only in line when the car is in the "run" position. This allows the ignition system the proper voltage to operate whether cranking or running, but sometimes the ballast resistors go bad, causing the engine to run while cranking but causing an open circuit in the ignition system when placed in the "run" position.
Good Luck.

My car does not start or turn over. The radio works and so does the fan.


When you turn the ignition key to start your car, voltage from the battery flows through the ignition switch to the Park/Neutral safety switch and/or brake pedal or clutch pedal safety switch (you have to push the pedal down before the circuit will complete) to the starter relay or solenoid. When the relay or solenoid is energized by voltage from the ignition switch circuit, it closes a contact that routes more power from the battery directly to the starter to crank the engine. The starter motor spins, pushes the starter drive gear to engage the flywheel and cranks the engine.

Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger).
Loose or corroded battery cables (Inspect, clean and tighten BOTH ends of BOTH battery cables).
Bad starter relay wiring connections or ground connection (Inspect, clean, tighten wiring connections).
Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay).
Bad starter (Jump battery voltage direct to starter to see if it spins, or remove starter and have it bench tested at auto parts store).
Damaged starter drive or teeth on flywheel (Remove starter and inspect drive gear and flywheel teeth, replace damaged parts if necessary).
Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).
Open P/N safety switch, or open Brake Pedal Safety Switch (automatic transmission) or open Clutch Pedal Switch (manual transmission). Bypass switch with jumper wire to see if engine cranks, or use test light or voltmeter to check for voltage passing through switch when ignition is turned to start.
Engine seized due to bearing failure or internal damage (Use socket and long handle to see if engine can be turned by hand, if not engine is locked up).
Engine hydrolocked due to coolant leak from leaky head gasket (Use socket and wrench to see if engine rotates, remove spark plugs and see if coolant comes out or engine can not be cranked with plugs out).

When the key is held in the start position for .4 seconds. The pcm/ecm has a start timer, it will crank until timer is timed out even though you release the key. That is normal. I don't know how long the timer runs?

As far as vehicle starting, check the basics. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? I can only help with testing.

Car died


The steering is powered by the crank by a v-belt, so, this only works with the engine turned on. Check all the gas supply lines (and fuel pump) and the electrical power from the distributor.
