Do you have anti-theft system? because if so, thats the problem! look what you should do crank it and see your instrument panel, if the security light comes on, then the problem is your anti-theft system.
good luck and come to Israel!

If the engine has no spark, check for
voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on. If NO
voltage, then problem is on the trigger side of the coil (pickup, crank sensor,
ignition module or primary wiring circuit).
But If there is NO voltage at the coil
itself, then in that case the problem is on the supply side (the ignition
switch or ignition wiring circuit).
But if the coil has voltage, then problem may be a bad high voltage output wire from the coil to spark plugs or hairline cracks in the coil output tower.------Getting this all possibilities checked will point towards the exact faulty part which is to be replaced.----------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
