Does it turn over but not start or not turn over at all? I would disconnect the battery for atleast ten minutes. If the latter I would also check battery voltage. It should be greater than 12 volts. Then tighten and clean all battery connections. Also tighten and clean the negative battery connections on the frame and motor also.

Need more info. Could be Plugs and wires. If it is old enough.

Check the connection to the battery. Had a similar situation where the bolt connecting the wires to the battery was too short, and the car would just randomly not start. (or the connection may just have become loose.)

If you have the system i have, there a reset button to the left of the steering wheel where you reset the, mph, gas used, average speed, miles left on fuel, and an OIL PERCENT USAGE LEFT, here you can reset the oil change to new. It resets the automatic oil change indicator. This is factory set for every 3000 miles. It doesn't know theres new oil and will continue to light until yhis is reset to 0%. Hope this works for you, It did for me.
