Look under the hood on the drivers side, where 1 or 2 black boxs are located, inside are fuses and relays, check these out, especially the start relay.

My Kia Spectra will crank but won't start

You need to first check to see if you are getting fuel and spark. Detach the air intake and spray a little starting fluid in the air intake. if it starts and runs for a moment then you likely have a bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay. if it does not start you have a spark or timing issue. if the engine turns over unusually fast you have a broken timing belt. if you have no spark, see video, you'll need to get an engine scan

I took my 2001 olds bravada to advance auto to have a service engine light checked they checked it and told me it was a secondary air intake malfunction code then they erased the code after that my car...

Well, the secondary air intake malfunction has to do with the air pump I read. Water can get into the air pump in some models and the pump would have to be replaced. However, I have heard that some OEM pumps have a short hose that accumulates water sometimes, causing a recurring problem.

Also, there is sometimes a 20 or 30 Amps fuse that controls the pump.

However, I think, that even though they cleared the code at Advance Auto Parts, and it wouldn't start, that the no start condition is not related to the air pump problem, since the air pump problem is more of an emission control to reduce pollution and doesn't feed directly into the combusiton chamber.

I think that you should check the fuel injectors to make sure that they are working. They should click when under pressure with fuel, and allow fuel to enter the combustion chamber.

Maybe check the fuse for the FI or fuel injectors.

It seems like your vehicle is getting spark since it runs briefly when you spray brake cleaner into the air intake.

Engine needs two things spark and fuel to run. both will cause problem your having. easiest thing to try is starting fluid spray into air intake to motor by opening air filter box. someone spray and someone start or run car - if performace changes possibly the fuel pump is going bad. If nothing improves you can look for spark problems which can be plugs or wires or ignition module(s)

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start

Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.
